Anna Raccoon – Head Rambles

To others here who follow me, Anna Racoon has died.

I’m so sorry – I bet she’s going to be working hard in the next dimension! What an amazing woman she was in this one.

Bye bye Anna – I have shed a tear for OUR loss.

Travel well!

Partition

From my sickbed I have watched a lot of TV. Currently on the BBC there is a new series on The Partition of India. I couldn’t be bothered to watch it. I know it will be ‘All gong and no dinner’ to quote Mandela. I think the 2013 documentary was very moving – and refined. Continue reading
