More than a year into the pandemic, many of the usual paths to happiness are blocked. We can’t always rely on the externals for their dependable highs: travel, going to pubs, bars and parties, socialising with large groups of friends, seeing live music, theatre and festivals …

Recipe: Conchiglie with Spicy Vodka Sauce

P normally cooks at our place because he’s actually really good (for one of our first dates, he made Shrimp Vol-au-Vent to start), but every once in a while, I come across a recipe that I’d like to try. Most of the time, they do not turn out great, but this one―a recipe for pasta with spicy vodka sauce―was so easy and delicious and turned out so well that I’ve made it twice already …

My father, a neurologist, once had a patient who was tormented, in the most visceral sense, by a poem. Philip was 12 years old and a student at a prestigious boarding school in Princeton, New Jersey. One of his assignments was to recite Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven. By the day of the presentation, he had rehearsed the poem dozens of times and could recall it with ease. But this time, as he stood before his classmates, something strange happened …

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

THE WEATHER has been beautiful, so on both Friday and Saturday, we took our new folding bicycles out for very long countryside rides through hilly landscapes filled with roaming sheep and giant bales of hay framed by rambling stone walls covered in moss that have been there for hundreds of years.
