In this world, and in the next


Flowers I have seen and honey I have tasted,

and heard the cuckoo’s song through to the end.

Now, in this world, and in the next, dear friend,

I shall forever know that life was not wasted.

— 17th century Japanese poem

Virginia Lumsdaine McCutcheon

December 23, 1919 – June 21, 2015

    Dear Pam – I’m so sorry about Virginia’s passing. What a wonderful thing you’ve done by sharing her story with the world. You did a good thing! xoxo, Micki

    Dear Pam,      Many thanks. I was wondering if you knew of any way that Auntie Virginia’s film might be available on DVD that can be viewed in the UK? If this happens, i know that we (in the UK) would so love to be able to see My Shanghai.     With best wishes,         diana xx.
