Once the disease of reading has laid hold upon the system it weakens it so that it falls an easy prey to that other scourge that dwells in the ink pot and festers in the quill. The wretch takes to writing.

Virginia Woolf, from Orlando

A note regarding photography:

Most of the beautiful photographs on my site are not by me. When possible, I will include a caption with the artist’s details below the image. Sometimes there’s no slick way to do that. On those occasions, such as the banner image on this page, I’ll insert a note at the bottom of the page. Like the one below.
