Those are three of my favorite things, and the weekend offered all. It seems a fair reward for a week focused on writing.
While May (after a glitch or two) proved itself bonny indeed, exceptional flowers generally come with exceptional weeds. Roses are especially lush around here this spring, and...Read more of this blog post »

Even though I have lived in the West Country for over ten years, I am ashamed to admit that until just a few weeks ago I had never set foot inside the famous Roman Baths at Bath.

This morning, I read with interest an article entitled Who killed the contemporary Christian music industry? over at The Week. I’m usually pretty skeptical of such pieces.

I do enjoy May usually. Rain — usually. (Certainly this year, good heavens, it can stop for a week or two now, please.) Not too hot. (Very much not too hot this year; it was 55 degrees this morning. Amazing. Brr.)
