Well, what was that all about?

For many people it was about an elderly lady who has served her country well visiting a part of her “Realm”

For me it is not about the woman. I Have great respect for her and the job she does. It is about what she represents.

In particular it is what she represents in Ireland. I have not fully figured out what Martin McGuinness is seeking to achieve by the big handshake yet. I’m open to suggestions. I still have to say that the idea of an unelected head of state is an anachronism as far as I am concerned.

By the way, thank you for reading my meandering thoughts. My “Hits” are increasing every day and it is very encouraging.
