Blogworld, at least my small corner of it has become something of a bleak riot of late rather than a place of comfort, mutual support and solace.
Life has been quite interesting these past couple of weeks and would have been rich material for several posts.
Perhaps I am being too sensitive but in the present climate they would have seemed irrelevant and inappropriate. How sad is that?
We are as varied and transient a group as you could find trying to find shelter under one small umbrella in a storm. If we cannot behave in a civilized manner together what hope do we have?
Today 92 years ago “the war to end all wars” came to an end. I was searching for a photo essay which I did about the battlefield remains around Ypres, the place where hundreds of thousands met their end, untold numbers only have their names on monuments, no single trace of them ever being found.
In the weeks which I spent on this project I never felt as low as I do on our battlefield here.
