The paper from Imperial College evaluating Emergency Department use with reference to access to a General Practitioner during the year 1 April 2011- 31 March 2012 here in England caused a small storm when it was published last week (June 13, 2013). At…

(I’d advise you to read it slowly, while thinking of someone you love, friend, child, parent, lover…)


Of the terrible doubt of appearances,
Of the uncertainty after all, that we may be deluded,
That may-be reliance and hope are but speculations after all,
That may-be identity beyond the grave is a beautiful fable only,
May-be the things I perceive, the animals, plants, men, hills,
shining and flowing waters,
The skies of day and night, colors, densities, forms, may-be these
are (as doubtless they are) only apparitions, and the real
something has yet to be known,
(How often they dart out of themselves as if to confound me and mock me!
How often I think neither I know, nor any man knows, aught of them,)
May-be seeming to me what they are (as doubtless they indeed but seem)
as from my present point of view, and might prove (as of course they
would) nought of what they appear, or nought anyhow, from entirely
changed points of view;
To me these and the like of these are curiously answer’d by my
lovers, my dear friends,
When he whom I love travels with me or sits a long while holding me
by the hand,
When the subtle air, the impalpable, the sense that words and reason
hold not, surround us and pervade us,
Then I am charged with untold and untellable wisdom, I am silent, I
require nothing further,
I cannot answer the question of appearances or that of identity
beyond the grave,
But I walk or sit indifferent, I am satisfied,
He ahold of my hand has completely satisfied me.

"

— “Of the terrible doubt of appearances” — Walt Whitman (via stephen-fry-me)

Celebrate!

…..the British asparagus season. It’s short - barely a month - but English asparagus is the best in the world. I would say that, because I live in London and for most of the year we can only get it flown in from South America. But for a few brief weeks the beautiful spears are sent around the country from farms like Wykham Park in Banbury (click here http://bit.ly/13EazLc) to read about them.

But often shoppers who appreciate the superior taste are sometimes disappointed: at the height of the season, the supermarkets may only have Peruvian or American asparagus in stock. That’s because it’s not possible to produce enough locally. The big problem is that asparagus is extremely temperature-sensitive and the British weather just isn’t dependable. This year, due to the rain and cold, the season is about three weeks late. But when the weather is right, the volume escalates overnight – it doesn’t just quadruple, apparently it goes berserk!

Coming up next: a bright twist to an old idea to go with asparagus.
