Update.

Have been playing around with my social media today and decided to import another of my blogs and amalgamate it with this one.
So, that's vintage fashion covered now .
As winter seems to have arrived today, it's bloody freezing, so my mood has changed and I feel rather
more communicative than I have been lately, this is because Neptune is now trine to my sign, that's according to cafeastrology.com.
It seems somehow more acceptable to sit indoors and write during the winter months, being a carefree 70's child as soon as leaf-bud comes into play I am outdoors as much as possible, playing.

This has been a terrible week on the world stage, one of the worst I can remember. Earlier this year I read a book called Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky which is set during WW2, an amazing book by an amazing woman, it was especially poignant as soon after I read it the refugee crisis really hit the news and I could empathise with the downtrodden people perhaps even more than I would have done .
Another trip to the library this week and I have borrowed 'Paris' by Edward Rutherfurd, an epic novel of the City of Lights, I have only read 67 pages but have already learnt so much history that my understanding of the world is already massively enhanced.
I remember as a child watching the news and feeling horribly dismayed at the images coming from Vietnam, even as a child or perhaps because of my childish innocence I can remember a sinking feeling and shrinking away from those images, a feeling of evil creeping into the whiteness of my youth.
I feel like that now when I watch the news and I am far from my youth.
