Sunday 3 July 1994

I wonder if that old lady's soul could have got into the electronic banking system yesterday? Maybe she's going round making phantom withdrawals from her enemies' accounts and depositing them in her friends and family's accounts.

On a more serious note...I was moved to go to church this morning. Encountering sudden death inspires a few thoughts on one's mortality.

I woke up this morning feeling like an animal snuggling in a forest, unaware that the stars are still there in daylight. It's just that you can't see them because of the light of the sun.

But church wasn't quite the comfort I had expected. I remembered that Dudley goes to what the kids call St Kevin's Church of the Holy Kapow. It was!
