Listening To:

Sinead Oʼconner - ʻThe Lion and the Cobraʼ (really very good). ʻTroyʼ is the tour de force of song writing.

Carlos Ruiz Zafonʼs ʻShadow of the Windʼ (again). Incredible piece of writing. Fermin Romero de Torres is my all time fictional hero. The wittiest man on font.

Any wildlife documentary. Also really enjoyed the scandinavian crime series ʻThe Bridgeʼ.

My Hofners. I am obsessed with them. Just cant say no. Nothing sounds better than a open E on a 1963 Galaxie Hofner.

See above; living on the coast; wildlife; wine and allowing myself time to enjoy it.
