Our London LiveWires have arrived this afternoon to be joined by their cousins, Aunts and Uncles on Wednesday for four days of family fun.
We all walked down to the allotment to check on any watering that was needed and found the irises that I showed you a couple of days ago in bud, fully open and lovely.
Born on this day in New Jersey in 1898, Paul Robeson was a singer, actor and activist who used his platform to speak up for justice.
Over the years, he lent his support for a variety of movements: from the Republican cause in Civil War Spain to the American Civil Rights Movement. I grew up listening to his singing and have written about him here before.This quotation seems very apt for the moment.
