Autumn is now upon us. The time to put swimsuits away and to embrace fluffy sweaters and silk pyjamas has come, a cup of hot tea in hand and our favourite adaptation of Pride and Prejudice on screen. It is not, however, the time to […]

At Summer’s End

At Summer’s End

Summer is warm and pink, the same floral dress worn day in and day out. Open in the back to let a rare breeze flow through. Berries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; an endless flow of sparkling liquids. Rain all day, nights spent running through […]

Rory Connects to Jhumpa Lahiri’s In Other Words
