One Bench, Many Times

In exposure on June 19, 2014

I dropped my daughter at school on March 6th 2013 and went off for my “commute”. I work from home and like to wander the long way round to get back there. I walked up a path I’d often walked before, but this time it was foggy. I was amused when I spotted this bench looking out at the solid wall of fog and snapped a picture of it.

St Paul de Vence

In exposure on June 18, 2014

We rented a lovely apartment for the week, only a short drive from Nice airport with a great view of the fortified town of St Paul de Vence on the hill above us. I wouldn’t have got bored with the view even if we had stayed a lot longer.

Looking for Yesterday

Looking for Yesterday by Marcia Muller

In books read on June 13, 2014

This is the 30th (yikes!) in the Sharon McCone series. Muller published the first in 1977, I started reading them in the mid-1990s and they have been among my favourite books ever since. But the last few have seemed a bit below par to me and I decided not to splurge on the hardback this time around. A year and a half after publication I'd almost forgotten about this book to be honest, but when I spotted it again decided it was time to give it a whirl.

And I got on with it better than the recent episodes in the series. Perhaps my expectations have fallen so low that that was inevitable, but it seemed a better formed book than the recent ones. The series has been going so long that it has a lengthy cast list of characters who could play bit parts and here Muller seems to have cleared most of them away and just provided a few cameo roles for old friends. There were times when I wondered if this was going to be the last McCone book, and I don't think I would have minded if it was, but in the end I was a little relieved to turn the final page and find a preview of the next book waiting for me (I didn't read it - I have memory problems with these preview chapters causing me to think I've read books that I haven't done and have mostly sworn off them).

Overall, this is nowhere near as good as the earlier books, but not bad all the same.

This was a kindle eBook.
