This morning I spoke with folk and, as usual, was struck by the rich tapestry of life.
One patient has had a fascinating career working in bomb disposal. Not a vocation for the faint hearted.
One patient has an engaging and encyclopaedic knowledge of greyhounds. Breeding, racing, everything.
One patient knows incredible amounts about tapestry and needlework. She returned from France where she travelled, alone, to visit a convent where some nuns could teach her a particular style and stitch.
People have such interesting lives, some days you're shaken in to realising it's a real privilege to share this.
