Quote Of The Day Challenge: Day Three

This is the third and final installation of the ‘Quote of the Day’ tag game, which was brought to my attention by Magpie at Midnight, who writes interesting posts and makes art. Go check out her blog.

Back? Hi! I started off this series with a quote from Kierkegaard, one of my favourite writers. The second installation came from Renaud, one of my favourite singer-songwriters. And now the final one is coming from my favourite TV show: Star Trek.  Continue reading “Quote Of The Day Challenge: Day Three”

Quote Of The Day Challenge: Day Two

Following on from my post last Monday, here’s the second in my series of quotes in the ‘quote of the day’ tag game challenge. I was nominated by the lovely Magpie at Midnight, whose blog you should check out.

Exploring London

Barbara Hepworth in Battersea Park

A lot of things have happened over the past few weeks. One of them is that my friend has come to stay for a while, along with her puppy. My cat is less than happy about this arrangement, but after spending the first few weeks inside the wardrobe, she’s now finally emerged and seems to be grudgingly accepting of the canine addition.

Of course, with increased puppy comes increased walking, and a week or so ago we took the dog for a long walk across London. We ended up in Battersea Park, where I stumbled across a Barbara Hepworth sculpture overlooking a lake.
