    I eagerly anticipated this latest offering by Mitchell, who is one of the most promising contemporary writers Iíve encountered, and at no point does this novel disappoint. Apart from being the most visually beautiful book I own (it is truly beautiful) it is the most beautiful book Iíve read this year.

    Set during the Edo period, in Japanís period of isolation, in the Dutch outpost of Dejima in the bay ...

    this is my first weekend alone. I'm working so it's ok, but when I got home last night it was so strange to walk into an empty house. I found a Beatles puzzle I bought years ago and spent about 3 hours on it 'till I went to bed. Then for a minuet this morning I felt like I had to go and wake my son up and get him ready for school but then I remembered he's off with his dad. I went to work and I just got home, I think I'll do a bit more of that puzzle tonight.

  5. Silence of the Night

    Silence of the Night

    Dusk falls upon the forest, fading last light,
    a gentle hush stirs the air, moves without sound,
    nocturne woods come to life in stillness of night,

    through descending darkness taking silent flight,
    feather touch sends ripples of awe that resound,
    the moon keeps vigil from her throne above,
    her light descends on the wings of a dove.
