A wonderful birthday gift
Yesterday a large letter arrived for me from Iran. Imagine my delight when I found that it contained a drawing by my dear friend Elahe Heidari. Elahe had posted it as a birthday gift but the Iranian post and the Royal Mail conspired to ensure that delivery took three weeks. But no matter, it will be framed and will grace my wall along with the other five of Elahe's works that I own.
