...and it's alright

A very slight blog for you today, as your blogger becomes lost in the anaesthetic fug of day-to-day irrelevancies. The moon was beautiful this last week, permanent by comparison to all this living. When I’d spent too long staring at it early one morning, the stars that hid behind it, made the thought even more dizzying.

The big Dementia and Imagination event is taking place at the Wellcome Trust on the 31st January and it promises to be a hum-dinger. If you're near the capital, or jetting into the UK, sign up for a day full of workshops and some talking heads - including my own, and where I'll share some thoughts on beauty. To find out more and register for a free place, contact Iona Strom: or Telephone (01248) 383050
