Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a peaceful organised hard working day of writing and posting; for staying home most of the day; for a slightly cooler day, the wind picking up strongly late afternoon, and feeling a first touch of autumn; for having tea with Rose Klein and Hans-Werner Klein at buzzy The 41 Restaurant, and then coming to my home afterwards for a spontaneous red wine and some snacks; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
