I was trying to track down the origin of a picture in a book I found at a fete on the weekend. The book is The Eye of War, and the picture was titled “The God of War looks at his handiwork – bomb damage to a Paris mansion.”
I haven’t found the picture online yet, but my search led me to this remarkable collection of war photos from the French Ministry of Defense.
Here’s Gillian Polack:
“I talk to strangers. You caught me in the act, yesterday. (Kaaron: I collected Gillian for our day of fetes and found her chatting to a woman on the steps in front of her apartment) We’d covered wearing hair rollers in semi-public, where it’s OK to smoke, how smokers network in the public service, how children of today don’t understand the pressure to take up smoking when we were their age (we reminisced about the Winfield ad!), what makes a good meeting place and a whole heap more things.”
I’d love to hear more examples of ‘refreshing the wells’. Comment here, or email me, and I’ll post your example in the following days.
