A bit of a rhetorical question because I think I have done over the last year or two and nobody in the whole world will have missed me. And when I die - which will not be all that far into the future as I shall be ninety in October- everything I think, feel and talk about will disappear into thin air - and all my possessions will either become those of someone in my family or they will go to the salerooms for sale and become the property of someone else - and all traces of me will disappear apart from a few faded photographs and a few memories which will gradually become less distinct and fade away. And that is as it should be and as it is for everyone.
So, when I look at the disgraceful goings on in Parliament I think I am entitled to just ignore it -, or the shield-bashing in the Ukraine, or the possible mishandling of the Covid crisis, or the state of the NHS, or the poverty in our so-called civilised country- I could go on but I won't- because all my worrying about it, all my discussing it with others, all my expressing of my feelings have for the last eighty nine years altered things not one iota and they won't do now. So from hereon in I shall enjoy the days of sunshine, enjoy the company of my friends and family, appreciate the love and friendship they bestow on me and try to live whatever time I have left in peace.
And I must say as I always do that you all contribute greatly to my life and for the I thank you most sincerely.
