For several years, I used to walk down a little alley in Bath, and started to wave 'hello' to a woman who I saw washing-up at a window every morning. It wasn't until she died that I found out that it was Angela Carter.

And...I love your header! I have been away for far too long..... getting tangled up in L-I-F-E!

Hugs to you!

Guess there's always an exception. At the Sriracha Tiger Zoo we visited last week, we saw little piglets running around a Tigress and tiger cubs suckling on a sow. The pervasion we humans are capable of...
