A Day of Learning

28 Mar

After the last session of my writing course – which was both challenging and enjoyably satisfying – I went to meet a friend for lunch (an excellent red pepper soup.)
After a long catch-up, we strolled over to Kresen Kernow (Cornwall Centre, home to the world’s largest collection of documents, books, maps and photographs related to Cornwall’s history)  where there is an exhibition about Cornish women. It was absolutely fascinating. My favourite story was of Mary Kelynack whom you can read about in this work by Michael Tangye, a local historian, In brief, she walked form Newlyn to London to visit The Great Exhibition, yes, she walked! And she was 76!

Thank you C for the photo

Just watched a very moving programme Channel 4 Bear Grylls meets Volodymyr Zelensky. If you get the chance, do watch it.

    What an amazing lady!!!
    I watched the programme too. I’m not a lover of Bear Grylls, but Mr Zelensky was brilliant. Very calm, caring and humble. We could do with him running the UK!!! Big hugs to him and the people of Ukraine

      I agree about Bear Grylls. I don’t usually watch him but am a big fan of Mr Zelensky and his people and all things Ukrainian. 🙂
