Making the connection

Charles Cowling

 

Ru Callender talking here on the Progressive Radio Network. If the preamble seems a little long, Ru comes in at 10 mins. The whole interview lasts an hour. 

“Everything we’ve learnt we’ve learnt from the people who have been brave enough and generous enough to invite us into their grief.”

Rupert, together with his wide, Clare, are owners of The Green Funeral Company here.

Jenny, I can’t see it on an iPad, but on the ‘big’ computer it appears in the box below e website link. It’s worth listening to!

Don’t think so, I can find a link to the website but not the radio programme.

Possibly I’m being a bit dumb (Monday morning and all that) but there doesn’t seem to be a link to the radio programme here?

No no, quite right Charles, she is actually my wide. It’s an unconventional arrangement, but such is modern life.

As you well know, Charles, I was only teasing, and your moral rectitude does you proud.

Yes, admitting one’s errors with a pure and open heart does seem very unfashionable at the moment. Which is a shame. Since all other approaches seem to be failing them somewhat, our beloved national institutions might like to try the novelty of a touch of humility and genuine remorse. We, and they, may be suprised with the response they receive. Once we’ve retrieved our chins from the pavement.

I’m sorry, Charles, I should have called you discreetly, a la Bank of England, to have a quiet word about something to your own benefit. You could have made a written note of the content and filed it away in case of later scrutiny. But now I fear for your personal safety. The cat is out of the bag.

Tell that sub to slap on some Deep Heat and pull him/herself together. How are you meant to infuse your lapsang souchong without your help-mate?

Charles, you may like to re-think your description of Claire. Claire with an ‘i’, too. Or are you making a new amalgam of ‘wife’ and ‘bride’? And to think that she called you ‘devilishly handsome’ too….
