I have also noted some of the complications that trying to define and identify informal carers gives rise to.

I have not yet begun to address the difficult question of what label to give the people on the receiving end of care, people like Arthur or Katrina's mother

2.2 Sensual world

Just back home after a night walk, Klingsor stood on the narrow stone balcony of his studio. Below him, dizzyingly precipitate, the old terrace gardens dropped away, a densely shadowed tangle of tree tops, palms, cedars, chestnuts, Judas-trees, red beech and eucalyptus, intertwined with climbing plants, lianas, wisterias ….
