A Slab of Gold?
We are again in Victoria for Christmas and New Year. Reading - this time the final installments of James Lees-Milne's diaries and the Untold Stories of Alan Bennett, listening to music (I have decided that in 2006 I will explore all aspects of French music), watching movies (Wool Cap, Something Stays Behind..), eating and drinking good wines (focusing on Chile and Argentina).
The house - rented by my business partner, Don who is in Kenya - is on the ocean, is very large and stunning - is a restful place, made more interesting by its design.From the window yesterday, we saw a barge ladened with what looked like gold - see the picture. It obviously wasn't a supersized ignot, but nonetheless it was impressive.
Restfulness, peace and quiet. Ah bliss.
