Anarchy in the UK

June 5th, 2011

I suggested she paint "Emma" on the side of her caravan, quickly explaining it was the name of my trusty steed. Over the Royal Blue strip she’d already added. Much to her own annoyance. English she was, but definitely not a Royalist. In the 70s she’d been an anarchist. Told me so. Proudly.

Eccentric or just a bit mad I wondered. The difference simple. One has lots more money than the other. Mad then I suppose. Living in a van park near Brisbane. A rather nice one at that. Cared for. Or was I being hasty? Overly judgmental? The lady flighty, a little scatty? But hardly a threat to society. Couldn’t imagine that’d ever been the case.
