I think the shooting of America's school children has loomed large in all our thoughts today. At tea time on the News we learn that he has been planning the shooting for some time and has not kept the fact secret. I think over here we find it almost impossible to understand. Certainly I do - that there can be so much hatred for one's fellow men.
I for one need to be thinking of a calmer subject.
Living alone teaches one not to dwell on things like this over which one has no control.
My afternoon has been taken up with Ukulele playing - five of us at an afternoon for an Alzheimer's support group. Tea, coffee, cake, chat and singing to the ukulele- all the old songs that everyone knows. I wish you could see the faces of the people who come - how much happier they look when they leave - and I mean both the patients and their carers. To have an afternoon of company, away from the house, with other people
who understand their difficulties.
It was home to more snow falling and a bitterly cold wind blowing. I desperately need to feel just a hint of Spring. Please.
