This is just a quick one to alert readers to a great new post from Susan Marie Ward over on her blog Staffordshirebred. It’s a lovely, touching and burningly honest piece of writing about her dad. The description of sitting with him and the shadows of mortality is touching and sobering by turns.
I make no apologies for banging on about this, but Susan’s writing on local history at the moment just overshadows everything else around. It’s beautiful, and long may it continue. I wish I was a tenth as good.
Please subscribe to Staffordshirebred; posts don’t appear with great frequency, but when they do, they’re worth waiting for.
Excellent stuff. My thanks to Susan.
