"I Can't Breathe"
When George Floyd was murdered on May 25 by a police officer in Minneapolis kneeling on his windpipe, his final words were: “I can’t breathe.” Somehow, this statement resonates powerfully with our time, and it was taken up by demonstrators across the US. “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.” He was not the first African […]

Dominic Cummings: Brazen Serpent
The British Prime Minister’s Machiavelli, Dominic Cummings, is in trouble — even though his “boss” is backing him. The serpentine Cummings is a close equivalent to ex-White House advisor Steve Bannon. Indeed, they are said to be in frequent touch. Cummings’ great triumph was the Brexit campaign, during which he managed to persuade just over half […]

An Interview With Me
Richard Wickes, who hosts a fascinating podcast devoted to “light workers”, interviewed me last week. When you get a Cancer and a Pisces talking together — one on an island in the Gulf of Siam and the other in the sleepy Thames Valley — you do some meandering.

Issey Miyake: Engineering Beauty
  “All I want is for people to experience a sense of joy when they wear my clothes.” If you have ever owned a garment made from one swathe of cloth, folded and cut into a shape that drapes and clings, flares and flutters, or creates an alien silhouette; that felt like a second, stranger […]

Happy May Day!
In France, bouquets of fragrant lily of the valley, or may bells are given to women on May Day. It’s a symbol of happiness, purity and good faith, and also of the end of a period of darkness. They are the most delicate, waxy flowers with a magical, delicate, heady scent. It seems a perfect […]

In some ways, this looks like a more relaxing month than April, although information is still coming at us fast.

The Mystery of the Missing Prime Minister
An odd feature of the current crisis — in this country — is the fact that the head of government has been missing for most of the time.
