I write, then I archive. I am not feeling quite so brave today.

Today is an emotional day, emotions are whirling around.

My friend is coming in to town tonight by train, I will pick her up at the station. This morning’s little projects have included vacuuming, making up the bed she will sleep in while she is here, and just generally tidying things up.

I watched the movie Ove today, it is a lovely film, a lovely story, sad but hopeful, I cried a lot. I really must restrict myself to comedies for the foreseeable future!

I am looking forward to spending time with my friend during her visit, we haven’t seen each other for about 14 years, lots to catch up on. We met in 1987, at a party, a BBQ, and have been friends ever since.

“The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable.”
John Kenneth Galbraith

I was looking for a quote as far from the affairs of the heart as I could manage, and there it was.
