30th Nov – Started learning Spanish online. Now I understand why a printed j sounds like h. Like San Jose.
1st Dec – Out of 30 people at a literacy lecture, two were men; one was wiry, white-haired, long-retired, the other was young, robust and black. The rest of us were middle-aged white women.
2nd Dec – At a ‘hipster’ market, some old half-life-size statues of Jesus and angels were for sale to ‘hip’ home decorators. They looked like church plunder.
3rd Dec – Listened to a radio program about flies; apparently they will provide us with new antibiotics in about ten years.
