It's grey and dark and wet here in London today: right out of a Dickens novel. I can't help thinking about Roz ('twisted embrace') and her family, arriving here from the countryside, and the way Roz's mum wrote last night in an email "While I’ve been typing this, I’ve been listening to the sound of hearty giggling rising from downstairs – Roz and her younger brother, from the sound of it – rolling around on the floor and quoting bits of Monty Python’s Flying Circus to each other!"
The '33' in Chile have got me thinking about heroism, and the idea of courage. I can't imagine what kind of courage it must take to be 15 and preparing for major surgery tomorrow, but to me, the heroism (or heroinism?) isn't just in the act of doing it, it's in keeping a sense of humour. Again, it's that Grace thing.

While visiting Susie at My Wardrobe, shooting and admiring all the pretty things, she mentioned they'll be involved with Vogues's Fashion's Night In, on 1st November. Have you heard about it? I'm trying to think of some way to cheer Roz up who should be home recovering around that time. In the meantime, if you want to send her a get well card, just email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) & I'll give you a London address.
Shot on another grey day - there is something quite spiritual, for me, in that light - at My Wardrobe. Thank you Susie! xx
