Just home from a fantastic weekend at Dark Mountain Base Camp, held at Embercombe, Devon. Am feeling equal parts wonder, gratitude, delight and exhaustion. Books, music, art, nature, fires, song, stories, a big tabby cat and wonderful people who really take care not to wreck the planet. The Fjallraven waterproof poncho the Hackney students so generously bought me as my leaving gift was perfect for the fireside, drizzle and rain and was widely coveted- so thanks again for that! I also appear to have created the shadow basket of destiny. More on all this soon.
Just got home to hungry swans. I am also really looking forward to teaching in Scotland on Friday.
