Apologies and Rewards
Apologies for the scant blogging - a combination of summer torpor (my brain's inclined to estivate) and the latest crisis in the ongoing saga of my mother's health, or rather her old age. As a result of the latter, I was called away to the Bucks-Oxon border yesterday to look after her overnight. While there, I was rewarded, at 5 o'clock this morning, by one of the most breathtakingly beautiful morning skies I have ever seen, and, a little later, on the platform of a commuter station, by the sight of a Marbled White butterfly. Life, that wondrous mysterious surprising thing, goes on. Of course.
