Easter Day here has been unbroken sunshine again - a lovely day and set to be similar tomorrow before it all begins to slip away and colder weather returns. At least Summer clothes have had an airing today even if they have to go back to their wardrobe tomorrow.
Today my son and his wife came out to Easter lunch with me - there were lots of families enjoying lunch together - a real holiday occasion. Good food, good company.
My neighbour, M, has spent the whole day from early this morning in her garden working hard. As I drew my curtains ten minutes ago she was still out there working in the almost dark. I was envious of her - there was a day when I could have done that. Now, an hour and I have to go inside and make a cup of tea and sit down.
The bad news today is from Sri Lanka - it is always somewhere. Somewhere in the world there seems always to be killing, hunger, something catastrophic of some kind or another. And it seems to be getting worse rather than better. We might have made huge strides forward in science and medicine and the like but we certainly have made no strides forward at all in humanity to man.
