After Meltdown I heard that things were not all that easy for Alfie (Alfreda Benge, artist and Wyatt's wife for those who do not know) and Robert Wyatt these days, so I sent them a friendly greeting.
I got a couple of mails from Robert, and he does not mind that this information goes out to friends out there who might visit this site:
Alfie has got troubles with her eyes, and Robert says her "eye deterioration being kept to minimum currently possible by (expensive!) monthly injections, so so far so ok about that". Let's just hope Alfie will be fine!
Then the message written yesterday goes: "But her lovely mother Irena died this morning, we're never prepared for these things. Irena was Alfie's only family. Feeling shocked and bewildered, we're never really ready for how it feels".
I am quite sure there are lots of sympathetic people out in the world who'd care to know this, and we all send our warm thoughts to Alfie and Robert.
