RIP Johnny Clegg
I vividly remember the impression Scatterlings of Africa made on me when I first heard it in the 1980s.

In Vancouver for the day, errands completed early, and it turns out I can't remember how to spend time in a city.

Thanks to a few moments inattention during which YouTube loaded an ad, I now have a Thomas Anders song stuck in my head and am thinking I should sue Google for mental anguish.

I don't think I'd like to live in London, but there is a lot to be said for a city in which one can wander out of one's hotel of a morning with no particular plan, and return a few hours later having learned quite a lot about the bloody power politics of the mid-19th Century Punjab.

So many interesting books in the SOAS library, and the worst air circulation.

Domestic mid-century modern: fabric designed and printed by my mother, 1953, and ceramic decanter decorated by my father, 1956.
