Dear Carol and Mike,


Mr Koko is notably absent from this small collection of familiar features, and is hastening to remedy the omission.   He envies Victor’s relative mobility – though claiming equal mental agility – and may attempt his own belkoom to prove it if his likeness can’t quickly be daylighted.  No handful of photos can hope to capture more than a glimpse,  but it’s wonderful to see a composite picture coming together on Mike’s site of a life extraordinarily well-lived, in all the ways that count.  Hannah is helping to search for some essential images – though I don’t think we have a shot of sizzling plantains in the frypan.  I have found two in hardcopy, taken the day we crossed between Newcastle and Protection on foot, following a Rick Scott concert in the park. Mike and a four year old Hannah are looking down at her muddy feet, apparently discussing  transport options in one; in the other Mike is carrying her one-armed, like a rugby ball, his blue pack on his back, her red pack in his other hand, striding across the seaweed-green channel toward the Protection shore. 


Looking for particular photographs has highlighted the disorder of all my files – hardcopy, digital and memory.  We’ll scan and send more soon. 



With very much love,


Lauren and Hannah
