War and Remembrance


‘The Sensual World (Instrumental)’ – Kate Bush

I’ve been watching WAR AND REMEMBRANCE and I’m finding it very powerful.

Amy rang me tonight.  It’s the first time we’ve spoken since the escalation of our ‘relationship’ led to a split.  She rang to break the ice and I’m glad she did.  Not that there really was any ice to break.  I’m glad she rang.  My conscience feels much lighter and we are still hoping to be good friends.  Our ‘relationship’ ‘experience’ has to be one of the strangest I’ve encountered in recent years.  It was so short and mortal.

The fact of Natalia leaving next week is still hard to take.  I wish I could see her this week.  Alas, she and her boyfriend are going to the Isle of Wight for some romantic goodbye sojourn.  All my best wishes go with you to Essex, Nat.  We must wait.

Then there’s Maggie.  I hope she’s okay.  I wish I could give her a ring but I don’t possess a number.  I hope she’s getting over her tragedy.  I hope she manages to have a happy birthday today.

It’s also about time I contacted Beatrice Miranda Wasp.  Where is she now?  Why didn’t she write back?

I must also post that letter to Manda Jones.  Pull yourself together, Ritch.
