MALALA—a statement of the failure of religion:
religion that fails to pro-actively promote the absolute equality of male and female is fundamentally immoral and unfit for decent society.
There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)

Oops! Been preoccupied and plants need watering. Drooping badly but I think they are lifting their heads slightly. Just in time with the water, hopefully.

GETTING MYSELF SORTED OUT

Phew! Beginning to get back together. Been absent helping my brother-in-law clear his mother's flat—she's moved into an all care home. Interesting experience, everything locked up and she is the most aware of them all but the worst are in another building across the way. Oh God! you can live too long, although at the moment she's fine to be with, she just needs help awareness constantly for physical safety reasons.
          Interesting aside. Totally absorbed in my own surroundings I am not unaware of the rest of the world and have diverse interactions with it but the sudden diversion into someone else's world helped me to review my own. I suddenly realise what it is to run one's own life around oneself. An odd thing to write for a bachelor who has not really settled into a "retired phase of mind". Still much to do and still determined to do, despite health telling me too early I am getting old and need to pace myself more vigilantly.
          Just that contrast over the last week has brought home I truly am a gentleman of independent means... for the moment. Concerns for unknown costs that may arise as health deteriorates becomes a concern but for now, just plough on, be and make the most of what you have. Yet a sense of selfishness creeps in: people do not have to experience the reality of flooded homes, flooded businesses; lost dreams; the sense of taking several years backwards to feel embittered. For some, just being as they are without these traumas is trauma enough. To all those not so fortunate, I grieve for you and wish you well.
