No More Confined in Chiswick. The Final Blog.

In my final Blog of the Chiswick Confined / My Corona Series I allow myself a rant about some of the nasty elements in British politics before calming down to saying thanks for reading one of the 160 or so blogs, to acknowledge my fortune in being able to shelter from Covid in a place with so many parks and gardens and sign off with two special pieces of music.

The British Museum can only put some one percent of their items on display at any one time. Some artifacts, their loss still mourned by indigenous cultures, are still being sold immorally to wealthy collectors at public auction.

Saturday was my second jab and the sun was shining. I decided this weekend to ignore royal funerals, politics and other bad news and count my blessings. Sometimes you just should.
