i’m falling into bed every night with a cup of THIS tea and a copy of martha’s vineyard, isle of dreams.
such enchantment to read! i’m crossing fingers that susan branch is planning to write another travel memoir of her current trip to scotland.
isle of dreams is the last in a 3-part illustrated memoir that was published out of order. i love the old-school feel of her blog and the long posts she writes there.
which brings me to emily carr.
thanks claudia (!) for mentioning her in the comments of my last post. i now have one of her diaries on my kindle and this fabulous book on my night table.
it is a laugh-out-loud good read. naturally i love the way she refers to her sister as “sister” because my travel journals are full of sister this and sister that.
i think i will write this very thing in my next travel journal chronicling an adventure with carol jean moss, who i’m quite sure will agree the handwriting in this dedication looks EXACTLY like the script of dear mama moss (!)
i finished season 3 of the fall, but i worried myself a bit when i started to feel sympathy for the serial killer. my favorite character this season was of course krister henriksson. (wallander!)
i’ve got midsommer murders on my watchlist as one of you suggested, and have begun one mississippi.
the drama i’m most keen to see unfold however will take place on tuesday, november 8. between now and then i hope to get in a few more quick sketches of the candidates.
see you soon!
