How to do justice to a new land, an old land, 1,000 pages of history, and a man who brings it all alive?
I give up!
I just returned from England, a land new to me, but yet one of the oldest, I’m nearing the end of a 1,000 page book entitled “The English and their History”, and Jack – my sweet dear beautiful friend Jack – has just emailed me from Changi, Singapore. (The Brits do get around, you know?) He is retracing the steps he took there when he was a young airman in the RAF decades ago – he said he walked probably 10 miles today looking for places he remembered – there’s not much left, save Biggin Hill.
In my book, I just read about Tony Blair. Very recent history. I’m nearing the end.
I’ll end with a photo or two from “the mother country”, England, and the intent to write more.
