Notes from the Weekend & this Week’s Links 14.08.23

THERE IS a Japanese word, baka, that is used to describe the beauty of the changing seasons, especially the vibrant colours of autumn leaves. In theory, this word relays something beautiful, but when it appears to be occurring in the middle of August, perhaps decidedly less so. Yes, July was a washout (apparently the sixth wettest July on record), but August, well we had high hopes for August, which has continued to deliver more of the same. Of course, all of this could change, as there is supposed to be some warm summery days arriving as early as tomorrow, so breakfast on the terrace is not completely out the question yet. This weekend was a homebody one, neo-noir films and books and late nights. I am still reading Chomksy and P is still on the stoics. There is something about flakely almond pastries and freshly-ground coffee on a Saturday morning.

This week’s links include seawilding a Scottish loch; and a holiday retreat on the Portuguese coast; tweed bomber jackets and classic leather holdalls, and much, much more.
