A good morning for me. In good spirits, I think – though not drunk!
Am sad to see, however, the Duke of Westminster has died: reading the write-ups in the Liverpool Echo and the Chester Chronicle (sister papers which published similar material this morning), he seemed quite a philanthropist.
As well as one of the key drivers behind Liverpool One; and I’ve got a lot of pleasure taking photos and walking around the place. So am sad, yes. The death of anyone impoverishes the world: the death of kindly people – and though I was never going to meet him, people who ain’t riven by bitterness re the wealth seem wholeheartedly in agreement that he was kindly – more so.
(And I hope we all will, when the time comes. In the meantime, we strive to do the best we can for ourselves – and then by extension, for others too.)
