The Last Post?

As with all her posts even before her diagnosis of cancer a few months ago, Sue Vincent has always projected a sense of grace and an ability to see the beauty in everything that she saw, be it an ancient monument, a pile of stones left by some ancient Britain, or the simple stained window in a small unremarkable stone church.

This may be the final post that I get chance to write for the Silent Eye… that decision has been taken out of my hands.

    So, thank you, Sally, for being such a lovely friend, so supportive and ready with practical advice. I am glad we met at the Bash… and sorry that was too be the only time. Hugs xxx

  2. Lets hope the best. There are much more wonders in the world, as thoughts we can have. Will have Sue explaining much more about the ancient Britain, writing another books with her companion Ani, and will meet her personally at next Bloggers Bash. Just as i had considered visiting the 2020 Bash this pandemic got started. Best wishes, Michael
