An image – sitting on a bench beside a stranger reading a book, and he commenting on the author, having read his books too; I think it was a William Boyd. That’s all – a brief meeting.
Another moment – hearing the announcement ‘incident on the line’ – a train delayed.
A feeling – the ache for the person who’d committed this desperate act – those left behind – the how and why.
Trying out a conversation – Greta was there fully formed – and Gerald; how many of us know a Gerald. And Leo, such waspish wit, such charm.
