I just have to express my sorrow and sympathy;
it would be crass and insensitive to write about banalities when people have died in a terrible fire not an hour away from where I am sitting.
Londoners really are under siege, aren’t they?
Ironically, when I was in New York, I was looking at all the fire escapes that are on the outside of the blocks of apartments where Gracie lives. You know the sort – New York buildings are covered with them.
Grace told me she isn’t allowed to put potted plants, laundry or anything on them – for obvious reasons. It’s in the rental contract and you can get fined. I get that.
There are no words, are there.
Time to go sit and reflect.
Say a prayer.
See whether we can help in any way at all.
Love & hugs,
