"I walk to the hill and scan the shoreline, finding the place, opening, where they disappeared: checking, reassuring. It's true, I am by myself; this is what I wanted, to stay here alone. From any rational point of view I am absurd; but there are no longer any rational points of view."
.
A Margaret Atwood that I had not even heard of until recently. I liked it, but didn't love it - not in the same way that I love some of her other novels.

"Good work matters. Acting on your ideals matters. How it matters is not always immediate or obvious."
.
It has been a week of sad news both far and close to home, but there have also been stories that give cause for hope, today's global climate strike being one of them. Quote from Rebecca Solnit's lovely, rousing letter to today's strikers in @guardian, which is definitely worth a read.

"C, a friend from university, sends me Ella Risbridger's article, about friends who are more than friends, friends who are family. And it sums up so perfectly how I have felt about the vast net of friends that pushed and pulled and cajoled me through the second half of 2018, that my eyes well up with tears reading it on the number 36 bus."
.
Another blog post, this one on friendship, inspired by @ellarisbridger's piece in @guardian earlier this year. And a photo from last Friday, on the bus home from Captain Marvel, where I didn't cry, but was in fact more happy than I think a 33 year old ought to be at getting one of the front seats on the upper deck. Link in bio.

"He looked silly to me, dough-bellied and chinless. Everything had rounded out...it was one of those moments when you look at the person you have loved for a long time and everything is wrong with them. There is absolutely nothing right. You cannot believe you were ever captivated by them in the first place...I felt irate. How dare he not give a f*ck? What a luxury, the luxury of a man. The luxury of someone who looked at the ravages of time and went, "Eh."."
.
A story of a break-up, of casual sex and hot merman sex, of loneliness, of the ocean, and, ultimately, of sisters.

"Her gaze, the adrenaline of it was like a stain, the etcs in her poem a bright light, a high noise. And if all this wasn't terrifying enough, her attention to the detail of every day was even more so, to pollen and struggling trees and the instincts of animals, to the difficulties of pretending to be relentlessly sane...to the nuance of mood and feeling in them all...She was as receptive it was possible to be, an explorer, an adventurer, a nightmare. Every moment with her was a kind of emergency, her words always too direct, too raw, too truthful."
.
I find Deborah Levy's words absolutely electric at times.

Last year it snowed on my birthday. This year @sadieleylaclark and I were going to swim at London Fields Lido, but it was grey and drizzly and we decided on cinema instead. On the canal walk back from Granary Square the sun was out and it was glorious, and as I already had my costume in my bag I impromptu diverted to the Ladies Pond. The sun disappeared behind clouds, but it was 7.5 degrees, and now we have reached March it feels like long days, leafy trees and double digit water cannot be far away.

"He orders us two Old Fashioned cocktails, and then insists I 'sample' Scotches, ryes, single malts and bourbons. I realise that saying you don't like whisky is like saying you don't like theatre, in that people will keep ramming it down your throat until you agree that it is good, and that they are smart for loving it."
.
I saw @czaronline at the @waterstonesgowerstreet Debut Fiction Showcase last May, but it's taken me this long to get round to reading Promising Young Women. It proved to be excellent company killing time in the sunshine on Southbank on Saturday afternoon, both very funny and frankly quite terrifying.

I am going to say that 6 degrees didn't feel that much warmer than 2, but there was blossom out, and the sun was shining. Also I got there on my bike, rather than the slow, circuitous bus route, and afterwards @chris.herring and I sat and ate pastries in the sunshine at the Parliament Hill Farmer's Market, so quite a different experience to a month ago.
