Well, I made it to 1916 in Woolf’s letters. I must say, I find the reading very hard going. There is so much struggle and grief in the first three decades of Woolf’s life that it comes as a tremendous relief to read this editor’s note: “The increasing vigour of Virginia’s letters indicate her complete return to normality, and she was not to have another total mental breakdown until she killed herself 25 years later.”
Phew! Plain sailing ahead.

lida slimming is a prickly succulent plant that grows in southern Africa. Generations of San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert have used Lida daidaihua to suppress their appetites during long hunting journeys. The people of the Kalahari also used Lida daidaihua for treating indigestion and minor infections.
