It’s a good day today. Found two pairs of earrings that I had presumed lost both presents from Daughters R and R. To celebrate I went to my local coffee shop, Parigi, for coffee, toast and the crossword. Can’t stop using this bloody phone camera but I will get over it soon I promise. You can see the Liffey in between the cars!
I am off to visit Daughter R and the twins shortly. I am reading two books at the moment, one by Hilary Mantel, her of Wolf Hall Booker Prize fame. I thought I would read one of her earlier books before embarking on the big one. Also Nothing to be Frightened of by Julian Barnes which is a fascinating look at death. My sister J worries about me being so preoccupied with the subject of death but it is my belief that the more I get used to it the easier it will be when the time comes.
Julian Barnes says I don’t believe in God, but I miss Him, which his brother the philosopher says is soppy. Are we afraid of death or of dying is one of the topics he explores. Anyway I will review both books in due course. For the moment it is good to be alive and happy and well and have four earrings.
