    Wonderful read Della and what a fantastic time you must have had in Malawi – not your usual assignment and what ‘food’ for future writing. Alcoholism is a dreadful illness and I do think it is in the genes and passed down through a family – I have know two in my life, not family members thankfully, and they both had fathers who suffered as well. It is destructive and causes no end of strife for loved ones. Mind you, there have been some amazing writers, painters, songwriters and composers who might never have produced the wonderful things they have, were they sober! All about proportion and if it is the driving force and all encompassing….or can be managed. Even so, a terrible thing to cope with. Good luck with your books, though it seems to me you don’t really need it as you seem to have cracked it already. Thanks again Morgen for a lovely guest and interesting read.

    Thank you, Jane, I loved Malawi, very humbling, very inspiring. And yes I agree with you about wonderful things coming out of what is basically pain. Sometimes I think pain can inspire the greatest writing of all.

    Great spotlight – thanks Morgen and Della! Recently read ‘Ice and a Slice’ and it has made a lasting impression.
