We are seeing lights at the ends of various tunnels: winter, sleep deprivation, baby fog, etc., leading to the making of Somewhat Ambitious Plans:
- 'In Search of Red and Other Stories' (Peter J. Cohen's collections are an inspiration and a delight)
- Citizen Pie
Of course, there are also Unambitious Plans:
- 'It can just be a series of almost random things that can make the difference between something being remembered or something being forgotten.'
- Heywood Hill: 'requests are as varied as the world of books is wide.'
- 'There was something wonderful and symbolic about Roberts losing almost complete control over the court’s indignant women, who are just not inclined to play nice anymore.'
- predicting rogue waves
- a taxonomy of buttercream
- epic recommendation lists: one like, one book (and another of women writers)
- listening to the deep ocean
- 'The wind was a force with its own ways, and it could not be seen or controlled. It was there, and we did not know who or what it was. It was a real being, unlike elves or goblins or mermaids. My head was full of images of trees and leaves and movement. It made me oddly happy.' - AS Byatt reviews Weatherland (a book I plan to read immediately).
