                                     End of Days...


At the weekend I was at the Hay Festival, and attended the "Letters of Note" event on Saturday, where some of our finest actors and actresses read letters pulled from history, old and contemporary, often very funny or incredibly poignant. One of the stand-outs was Benedict Cumberbatch reading the letter that the palliative care doctor, Dr Mark Taubert, wrote on learning of the death of David Bowie. It is both a private discourse, but also one with a wider wiser insight into how we can, if possible, approach death.
