…right now, currently rocketing through the wilds of Ontario on the back of a snorting steam engine, belching brimstone and sorcery. [And THAT, Via Rail, is a far, far better description than you deserve, I must say…]
But while I am away, I beg — nay, I PLEAD — that you turn your attention to an amazing blog I have been enjoying recently. It’s called Letters of Note, and I have had endless hours of pleasure reading the contents. How about an employment plea from Leonardo, for beginners? Or a cranky note to a misspelling student-admirer from James Thurber? Or the little story that would go on to become Peter Rabbit, as written to the child of a friend by Beatrix Potter?
Just a lovely, lovely site. You will SO thank me. Enjoy.
