A Complete Turnaround

Ach- you have to be careful what you say. The gods are listening.

It's only days ago that I confessed, here in this blog, that I was bored with fiction. That must have angered Someone. Or amused them. Anyway, I now find I'm on a reading jag- with a mission to consume all the great 2Oth century novels I missed first time round. It's like a conversion experience.

And, maddest of all, I'm totally gone on Virginia Woolf. I want to read the Complete Works. And I've spent all my life despising and reviling her. Sorry, Virginia; I knew not what I did.

I can't explain it. I really can't. But we do have this statue of Pallas Athena in our bedroom....
