Happy New Year

I guess it is deep into the year and I should stop the felicitations. So far it has been a good year....

During the holidays I was watching an episode of the Practice and this was about a man who was on death row and his defence lawyers had 18 hours to lodge an appeal. The appeals for clemency to the Governor and the Court of Appeal failed and as he was waiting for all this to happen they served him his last meal and there was all manner of food from a large steak to a large portion of lobster which the death row inmate had never eaten before. It struck me with a such a degree of sadness and poignancy although this was a dramatisation and the fact that this man had been poor and for all his time at death row he had only been served prison food. It left me thinking.

Two days later over on Radio 4 news the newsreader said that prisoners in Kenya were giving up a meal in donation to the famine. Wow, set my little brain cells thinking.

You and your Lost there was no cliffhanger intended however, it was just that thing about food and death and lack of freedom. My little cells are still clicking.
