Broughty Ferry

A lovely day out now the kids are off school. More Wullies, of course. Windy but beautiful, I think you’ll agree. More photos on FB, if you’re there.

Lee Krasner at @BarbicanCentre

Go see this. Don’t just take my word for it, look/listen to all these artists, too. More pix on FB; as always, click to embiggen.

Snapshots of Pescara

I attended Captivating Criminality 6 on the coast of the Adriatic. Pescara was once an Olympic venue. Pier Paolo Passolini passed there on his coastal roadtrip. It was very hot and surprisingly humid, so you can imagine how enervated I was (melting! melting!). Though I knew co-host Fiona Peters, I met folks I’ve known online…

Captivating Criminality 6

I am on the road again! Off to the east coast of Italy for Captivating Criminality 6. It should be a lot of fun. I’ve not been to that part of Italy and it looks like there’s a great range of presentations. I’ll be talking about the adaptations of Patricia Highsmith’s Ripley’s Game. Not sure…

Magickal Women Conference 2019

The Magickal Women Conference, exactly as advertised: a fantastic day! The only fault I would bring up is that there was just too much wonderful stuff to see it all. Well done, looking forward to the next one. Not many photos alas, as there was just too much going on. Victoria Musson‘s Grain Goddess was…

Mich/shenanigans

As I get ready to head off on another journey (yes, but I am really slowing down after this! July is EMPTY of to-dos) I thought I should get at least one more catch-up post of some photos here. Michigan trip for the medieval congress, friends, and family. Good times! Great to see Suzy perform…

Sunday Sun

These are actually from last week as it’s a bit dreich today. I am planning to catch up on things — many sights to show you from the last few months —¬† but it’s been a bit hectic yet this month. But real summer soon (okay, maybe not the weather — I’m okay with dreich)….

Home Town Jaunt

Made a brief trip to the home town with my brother to see our other brother and my dad and pick up some things. Weird how much the town has changed yet our street so little. My older brother lives in my grandparents’ house, which we lived in when I was born, then moved into…

V&A Dundee

It’s true I mostly hibernated over the break — some days I never even left the house — but I did finally make it down to the V&A to experience the much-anticipated glory inside it. The outside, I already knew, was gorgeous. I mean really just lovely. But inside, too, many wonders awaited. Lots more…

Dundee

I realise I have not updated the blog since I got here: there was the flurry of grading and then my birthday and all kinds of weird stuff called¬†relaxing that was happening. So here are some random snapshots of the toon that you may have glimpsed if you follow me on social media: More to…
