must have rained earlier but i did not notice it. the ground is a bit damp when i looked out on the courtyard just now, suggesting it rained earlier.

i have been watching a tv program about male suicides. 84 suicides every week. it seems it is the biggest cause of death of males under 50 in uk. it surprises me because we dont hear much of it in the news. at least i have not seen any news headlines with the high rate of suicides. the telegraph, guardian, times, daily mail, papers that i read in the library, or online in their webpages never have any articles about it because i never read about it in there and i read these pages every day… unlike say a knifing death in the suburbs of london. we are getting quite a lot of that now… making it seem as if that must be the highest cause of deaths amongst young men… but no, it is suicide.
