This weeks blog recommend is an offering from an inspiring young writer and English lecturer. Faller Ideas is a beautifully crafted offering, thoughtful, gently and humbly offered musings about life, writing, travel, love. Patrick has been inspiring me to keep on writing for a while now and is often reminding me that putting words out here creates connections, virtual friendships worth cultivating.
It’s birthday season in my household and my baking skills have been put to the test recently – the results not pretty enough to merit a photo but absolutely and totally delicious – my number one favourite is this Hummingbird Cake it’s a family staple and we follow the version from the bakery of the same name. The book is tattered and has lost it’s cover, pages stuck together with errant cake mixture, it’s a testament to a recipe book that’s earned it’s keep!
Bic Runga is a singer songwriter I discovered while travelling in New Zealand – in the UK she’s pretty much unknown but I continue to love her music – she sings with real purity and clarity. Music that stays in your head and themes that touch your heart.
