I have been having a discussion on FB (in the Notes section) with Mark Husmann on the Snowden case about which more than one person has written to me asking me to sign protests. I haven't yet signed the protests because the US hasn't as yet said what it intends to do.
Mark Husmann is a good man, and so in general are the others who want me to sign. I might well do so, but I don't want to be rushed. I would prefer to think why I should sign and what exactly I do sign. I always prefer to think. I have asked Mark if he would mind me blogging our discussion. If he agrees I will do so.
In the meantime some news on our neighbour. She is still in hospital and, after a very bad yesterday, things apparently look a little better today. But she is in the acute stroke ward - so it was in fact a stroke, as we suspected.
We are watching Springwatch, our one TV indulgence and as we watch the sun comes out. I look out of the window and see the play of light on the wall as wind blows the leaves. It is beautiful so I film 13 seconds of it. Here it is.
