Tuesday Thoughts...


silence... solitude...

the kids are back to school today, nick's at work, and the house is still.

it was -5C last night, and it's bitterly cold outside, the perfect conditions for cranking up the gas fire, curling under a blanket, and reading :o)

i've been itching to read this - julia briggs was one of the english tutors at oxford when i was there, and once i sat in on a friend's seminar with julia - a treasured highlight of my time there, and a glimpse of what my studies might have been if i hadn't chosen theology over english...

sadly julia died last august, and for once, every word of the guardian's glowing obituary was justified.

so i shall sit here, on this coldest of days, warming my soul and igniting my mind with the words of one brilliant woman about another.
