Weekend Read (or watch or listen)

 

winter skaters

 

 

Listen:

When Fenlands raced with Jack Frost by Roger Deakin, read by Robert Macfarlane. Brief, beautiful and evocative tale of skaters in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Winter fodder to be savoured blanket wrapped beside the fire.

Read:

An elegant brief essay on the beauty of being connected to environment through food and drink and the increasing tendency for disassociation in our race for convenience and speed.

The Keurig, the Chemex, and Dietary Gnosticism

Listen:

Dougie and Jamie Richards of Plastic Mermaids sing a simple, pared down, melodic ballad. Recorded in the derelict space of a holiday camp long since deserted on the desolate Southern coast of the Isle of Wight, Echo Man speaks of isolation, alienation and memory.
