Yawning, walking and working

Almost no sleep after 2:30 last night for some reason. But lots of writing today and lots of walking too. At the top of the nearest down on the edge of town is an iron age Hollingbury Hillfort.  There doesn't seem to be much information about it. Anyway, much mooching about today listening to  C.S. Lewis - A Life by Alister E. McGrath, which I am quiet enjoying. Otherwise hard at work on the MS.

Lorraine home late tonight, and Beth rehearsing, so I watched Son of Saul on Netflix. Absolutely brilliant, although utterly bleak, film of the experience of someone enslaved as a Sonderkommando in Auschwitz. Very pleased when Lorraine came home.

Re Auschwitz, I recommend you seek out and read Justice Not Vengeance by Simon Weisenthal. I've just finished it. It should be on everyone's reading list.

Ah ha. Sorry just spotted this Richard old thing! Yes I would like to read that. I have read lots of Holocaust literature. Primo Levi is my favourite still I think, if favourite is the right kind of word that is...
