The end is nigh

The holidays are nearly over and as a last hurrah we went into town. First to the British Museum to see a fascinating small exhibition of drawings and paintings of witches through the centuries. There were some exquisite drawings and etchings by the likes of Goya and Dürer, but wow, it was shocking to see how women have been feared and reviled over the centuries - they were clearly the object of hatred in these artworks: devils incarnate.
