Summer should be all about hammocks in the shade, cool drinks and laziness. So far, mine has been fairly hectic. I am clearly doing something wrong! But at least I am busy doing things that interest me, being with people I love and, before the days shorten dramatically, I will have struck a balance between doing and…doing nothing. Hope your days are lazy and cool.

It was with a mixture of surprise and sadness that, on Thursday morning, I learnt Chris Cornell had taken his own life. More than Nirvana or Pearl Jam, Soundgarden was the band that represented grunge for me, and it was a privilege to work with them.

Beyond the stage persona and the guitar riffs were a seriousness not often associated with rock stars but, above all, exquisitely personal lyrics, un unsettling and beautiful four-octave voice and  a sense of searching. I guess the demons won.

I am writing this barely an hour since the US Congress passed a bill aimed at profoundly altering our healthcare system, all in the name of selfishness and capitalism. If this bill ever became law, people like me, with a serious or chronic disease, no matter how far in the past, would be charged considerably more for health insurance than healthy people, with no cap.
