Dear Mary

Thank you so much for the copies of the photo. I apologise for giving  
you so much trouble. I now have a new photo  storage programme on my  
computer which numbers everything beautifully, even puts from 1 to 5  
stars on the storage version if required, and I am sorry it was not  
on the market in time for you.    How urgently do you need the black  
and white conversions? The new edition of photoshop is bursting on to  
the market on 20th April, and this ill make black and white  
conversion to the highest standard an absolute doddle, which it is  
not on the old programme.  So I am tempted to wait for this. But if  
any are urgent, please let me know, and I will do them at once.

I haven't written  back to performksocsci.  I am not sure of the  
precise meaning of  performative social  science. "Performative" is  
not in the Shorter Oxford Dictionary, at least not my edition.  It  
sounds a bit like jargon to me   I saw something written about  
doctors using poetry and narrative, but no explanation.  I like Zoe's  
poem -  best so far -  she wants to be creative rather than just clever.

Much love

Camilla
