Reading & Charity

Apart from dipping into Szmyborska’s poetry I decided to start on the first book for my course on ‘World Literature: The Nobel Prize.’ One of the set books for the course is Naipaul’s ‘Enigma of Arrival.’ I’ve read a few of his books but not this one. The opening pages are descriptions of a tiny piece of Wiltshire written with a sharp eye and lucid prose. A bit melancholic so far, hope it gets better as I progress through the book. I am also enjoying reading the little book on ‘Coffee with Michaelangelo’ and learning so much that I did not know about him, his poetry for a start!

In my mail today I had one of these charity organisations asking for a Chritsmas donation. I salute them all for their sterling work but implore them to spend less on the freebies they are sending me to get my attention. It has grown from pens, stationery, wrapping paper, personalised cards to a CD of Christmas songs! I’d rather they spend that money on the cause.
