Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Artefacts, about collecting objects from the mundane to the bizarre, and the stories they tell us.
Or it might be a portfolio of photos to celebrate the pleasures of paintbox colours like Alizarin Crimson, Cerulean Blue, Naples Yellow, Vermillon....
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
The Alexandrian Quartet by Lawrence Durrell. He uses the word 'Islomanes' to describe people " who find islands somehow irresistible. The mere knowledge that they are on an island, a little world surrounded by the sea, fills them with an indescribable intoxication..." One of my inspirations for 'Tidelines' for sure.
