    So, under apartheid, education in the townships was so poor, ideas about ww2 were slight and confused. Also under it, blacks were required to have an 'English' first name, that the whites could pronounce. These were taken rather randomly, and Hitler isn't uncommon. It's the name of Noah's troupe's featured dancer. The crew chants 'go Hitler' when he dances. Their group is invited to perform at a cultural jamboree at a Jewish academy....

    This gives me an idea, if we set up as producers and get little old ladies to invest... Oh no, wait a min.
    A new story

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.

    I'm at page 24 in " long road from JARROW" by one Stuart Maconie.
    Could turn out to be a difficult read but gotta be done I think.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong" Mahatma Gandhi.
    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    Black Lavender Milk by Angel Dominguez.

    A book of ritual, thirst, reconnection with ancestral roots, poetry... so good so far. Invites the reader to dream, to drown, and to wake up with a tongue seeking more.

    How will it be to die of a stroke ??
    of cancer ??
    of AIDS ??
    of a heart failure ??
    of Alzheimer's ??
    Sherwin B. Nuland knows - and has written a book about it: "How we Die".
    He takes the reader through the stopping of circulation, the inadequate transport of oxygen to the tissues, the flickering out of brain function, the failure of organs, the destruction of vital centers ... and much more, which are common for the things we have to experience when in the process of dying.
    Interesting ...
    Don't you want to know ??

    Germane to some of the topics in the 'writing discussions' area and a good volume in general, at least the best I've found so far: Without Conscience.

    I️ have read that book and it is excellent. For those who want something similarly paranoia inducing though perhaps a little more kitchen sink, may I️ also recommend “The Sociopath Next Door” https://m.barnesandnoble.com/p/socio...RoCklkQAvD_BwE
