Well it's been a while since I've managed a what:nots post. I've had some of this list waiting patiently since our trip to the San Juan's and BC. Have you been to the San Juans? They were overwhelmingly beautiful. Remote, quiet, and oh so still. We stayed in a wee house on an inlet, watched deer wander past, and the water gently lap at our feet. Oh to disappear there for an extended stay. The last month or so has been a whirlwind of back to school things, packing + despatching our belongings to New Zealand, plus lots of riding. It's hard to believe we have less than ten weeks left in the States. Yikes! I hope all is well in your neck of the woods - here's a motley mix of things...
...I was delighted to hear that Eleanor Cattan's The Luminaries won the Man Booker
...If you're in Vancouver I can recommend dinner at Boneta - delicious!
...Here's a fascinating interview with 86 year-old Marie Hull-Brown on her career in the British Army, as a policewoman in post WWII London, and her work in raising mental health awareness
...And I found this blockbuster lived up all the hype.

Sir by D.S. & Durga - a chypre of Indonesian patcholui, amber, jasmine + mace.

An elegant, and temporary, tattoo.

Old Faithful Shop - a modern version of a general store.

 A simple sculpture found here.

Vancouver's Nelson the Seagull - good bread and good coffee.

Midori brass number clips from Baum-Kuchen.

And this duet.

The green deep woods...

Come to the woods, for here is rest. There is no repose
like that of the green deep woods.

Grey cloaks the world...

After the Autumn brilliance, grey cloaks the world,
a sleepiness that seems as though it will last an eternity...
