I lived in Havana for 10 years, a freelance journalist accredited to CBS news, The Economist and The Daily and Sunday Telegraph and a major contributor to a series of travel guides and TV shows; my news, features and columns have appeared across the English-speaking world. When a series of articles in The Economist inspired the Cubans ask me to leave and return nevermore, I turned in desperation to writing comedy for the BBC and a novel, Entanglement, now published.

I live in England, on a wild and windy moor, in sheepshagger country. I smell of dust, old books and bluebells. I love books, comedy, fantasy, gardening, and all things earthy. Make me laugh and I'll be your friend forever.

The horror is pervasive and graphic and… It’s just not my bag. It’s a real shame, because I love Gaiman’s work, as a rule, and having never read any of The Sandman GNs before, I was really looking forwa

Making Connections: 605. ENTANGLEMENT by Maya Panika 2 19 Nov 07, 2012 03:24PM  
“There is geometry in the humming of the strings. There is music in the spacing of the spheres. ”
Pythagoras

“There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.”
Sylvester McCoy

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“God has no religion.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you'd be doomed. You'd be ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Maya Panika In response to a question from Shovelmonkey1 - I was comparing myself to Samuel Pepys; I too would bury my cheese to protect it, if called upon to do so.

I do like cheese. I'm eating some now!


message 6: by Maya

Maya Panika We must all stick together and keep shovels at the ready. ::nods::


Shovelmonkey1 Cheese lovers of the world unite!
