"Dear old mon / Been deep all this afternoon in 'Wisdom's Daughter' for which a thousand thanks. As for its 'the vitality of the I am' thing that dumbfounds me. I've been enjoying a set-back of about a fortnight - or you'd have heard from me long ago. I'm better now, but nothing to sing about - yet. Can you come for lunch next Tuesday?
