Ernest Hemingway


Also had an absolutely cracking moustache.

I think there could be something in this.

Writers who have moustaches.

There is something distinguished –

about a finely combed moustache.

Gabriel García Márquez


Has an absolutely cracking cracking moustache.

I mean: his face is the moustache.

His eyebrows are the moustache.

I bet he was born with it –

and his face grew around it.

Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, 1961

I like this house.

It’s complex and simple and open and closed and big and little.

It represents diversity and inclusion.

It’s not nervous.

It has tension.

It’s elemental.

It’s contradictory.

It’s fragmented.

It does not achieve ‘easy harmony’ (LESS IS MORE) said Le Corbusier.

Midnight’s Children

I finished reading Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children this week and it only sucked two weeks out of my life.

I suppose it’s a small price to pay to say you have read Midnight’s Children.

It was quite good. These things tend to be that. Quite good.
