This is my grandmother, Lorna, on a Christmas day in Perth in the eighties. She came to visit us in Norway when I was little and did yoga and when we visited her she had a cat and a dog and lived by the beach and when we were apart she would send us parcels of books but then the parcels stopped coming and she remembered less and less every time we visited her. She died more than a decade ago. I had forgotten this snippet of video sent me by my Uncle Ted.

Isn't she beautiful?

Oh dear mum, I tried to make it Windows-friendly, same as that Omitted video. You're not seeing anything?

Nope. Not seeing a thing. Windows puts me in the wrong league I guess - but I have the advantage that I knew her. I can conjure her up in my mind from memories. I see her before me now. Yes. She was beautiful, charming and stunningly intelligent - a desparately difficult combination for a woman in Australia in her lifetime. Not that she ever saw it that way herself of course.
