Good morning folks,
It’s all bare branches and frozen fronds this morning with a couple of haiku…
White, crusted crystal
Over tumbling water spans.
Flakes of lichen,
Braced against the chill north wind.
Things I’ve read this week…
‘Mr. and Mrs. Haben – Flappers and their Secrets‘ by Jennifer L. Meacham is a wonderfully-crafted little story. I genuinely didn’t see where it was going. It is not a tale which I can hint at without giving away the reveal, but well worth a read if you have a spare five minutes.
The Writer’s Museum, Edinburgh celebrates the lives of Robert Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Sir Walter Scott. It’s not one of Edinburgh’s most advertised tourist attractions, but still I am surprised that in all the times I have visited, lectured in, and travelled through the city I have never heard of it. I have Kaleb Bird’s blog to thank for alerting me to its presence and post-lockdown I’ll be planning a visit!

Not necessarily in that order.
