Thank you for all your messages & concern for my family in Christchurch after the terrifying earthquake on Tuesday lunchtime. They are all fine physically & pretty much just taking each day as it comes.
Much of the city is still without power & water. It's going to take a lot of time & support to get over this frightening natural disaster.

This is one of those books you read as slowly as possible in the hope that it won't come to an end.
Edmund de Waal's book is a biography of things as much as of people, specifically a collection of minature Japanese sculptures - netsuke.
We're off on a much needed break away to the wilds of the Catalunya coast this weekend.

Gruissan des Chalets is a small beach town with characteristic beach huts on stilts. It's where Betty Blue or 37.2ºC le Matin was filmed.
It was actually the first proper adult French film I saw years ago in New Zealand. I remember it more for it's exotic setting than for the antics of Béatrice Dalle.
