Finally back from the French coast. ' The font ' map reads in a creative, highly interpretative, manner. This adds a couple of hours to the journey.
This morning I looked up the story in his memoirs to see if I'd remembered it correctly . '' Lungs,heart may have stopped but the optic nerves were still sending messages to a brain which, those who should know tell us, does not immediately shut down . So we stared at each other at the end ".
I wonder if this continued functioning of the optical nerve is a medical fact ? If so is it alarming or reassuring ? Can it really continue sending images to the brain after the other organs have stopped ?
