The family is out on another morning cycle ride and so I’ve got the radio on. A connection to the outside world, a chance to be outside my box. Today there’s news about family feuds at the richest end of society “something that puts our challenges under lockdown into perspective” apparently, I’m not sure that I can ever connect myself with the family that used to own the Ritz but perhaps I should, maybe it would have made more sense if I’d listened to the first part
