A Writer’s Notebook VI
My neighbour told me about her brother, David, who moved to Cardiff when he left University about ten years ago. He has been working there since then, something in the IT industry. He is unmarried and lives alone.

He’s a little camp but has never come out with his family and they think, maybe he’s gay, maybe he isn’t. It doesn’t seem to matter.
But he told Fiona (that’s my neighbour) on a recent visit, about an older lady in his street who asked him, obviously concerned, in the course of a conversation, “What do you do for love?”
