In The Grove a small boy in a Darth Vader black Helmet and cloak pursues two pigeons. He shouts at the top of his voice. The pigeons rise in the air and land a few yards away. They have seen it all before.
From the bank counter I have a glimpse through an open door into a sort of large common room. The room is dominated by a green notice board on which someone has written in caps with a black ink marker the words "Dedicated Empathetic Knowledgeable". I imagine the training session where these qualities are proposed as models presumably to the bank staff and management. But what do they mean? What do they really mean?
Somone's joking. "Empathetic" sits uneasily within the purlieus of a bank. As does purlieus.
