I posted a few thoughts last night, things which trouble me & that got the better of me. Writing them exorcised the demons at least for a while anyway. But in the cold clear light of the morning I thought that what I'd written was a tad histrionic and 'sad'. So I removed them. The feelings are still there, though for the moment not so acute.
James made a kind comment on them, he understood my predicament & I thank him for his time & empathy.
Nevertheless the post is no longer on my blog & I apologise for its removal especially to James.
Incidently, I'm still coughing like a Somme gas attack victim! c1916!!
