Out of the Jurisdiction: Diana


Diana is 83.  She had a table at the Bryanston Organic Market where she was selling polished stones.
She also had a few copies of her memoir, telling the tale of her birth in Africa, being sent to live with her grandparents on a gloomy estate in Ireland as a child when her parents split up,
and returning to live an adventurous life in Africa as an adult.  
I bought a copy.

And, at the other end of the age spectrum, here is wonderful Willa this morning.  
It is astonishing how alert she is at 17 days.
