The horse and the barn door

We received the news this morning that the man who fell past my window last Wednesday had died of his injuries in hospital this weekend. He was 30 years old, recently married, and the father of a little one only a few weeks old. Needless to say we were all quite saddened by the news.

His mates returned to work today, after the authorities had given them the go-ahead; they strung up a safety net in the courtyard where the accident had occured, and every single one of the men that were working on the cupola were properly and conspicuously tethered and secured.

On a personal note: it turns out I'm not menopausal yet.
