Religion, politics, and a space to breathe

Just a quick start to this. Thanks for your letter which arrived as I’m struggling with the middle section of Ice Child – the weather, a tooth extraction, and general exhaustion, I think. Still no shrugging, though.
I was going to say how odd it is that I always start letters (and emails) with the end of the letter I’m writing back to, and now I’ve written seven lines already without saying what I was going to start with, which is that I don’t actually know when your birthday is. Sorry. Barolo, what a wonderful name for a wine – the word rolls round your mouth just like that rich red flavour. I must go back to drinking more red again. I always prescribe it for friends when they have colds.
