So here I am again. After a long time away from my blog I felt the need to return to these pages.
I am now writing my dissertation for my MA in Victorian Studies.
Frankly I feel a little rusty.
I have missed my morning pages, my scribbles and my writing classes with the wonderful Sarah Salway.
I can't even really say exactly what I am writing about for fear of plagiarising myself.
But the visuals are a clue, of time and place.
But not of gender or artefact.
I have discovered that I love archives, old papers, illegible handwriting and the smell of lives lived.This is the view from my archive chair. Although I do choose a different aspect each time I visit.
Today, was particularly beautiful.
After the couple of hours spent with my head in books, I decided to shake it all off.
I walked amongst rhododendrons fragrant with azaleas heady scent.
