Holiday beginnings

Delayed at the airport but free wi-fi. On holiday till Aug 20. May post occasionally. Reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - marvellous beginning -brilliantly told, very relevant to the life of the past century of race relations and medical science.

The picture is of a tree (in the background) that may not be there when we return. It has a serious fungus that renders its roots unstable. It is a shagbark hickory that has been featured covered with snow on this blog in the past - but I can't find the image at the moment.
