Spam, nuns and wet flakes.

1. My email comes with ads suggested by the content of my messages -- I'm sure my privacy is being invaded somehow, but what's a girl to do? Anyway, while I'm casting an eye over my spam basket, I note that the ads are all for spam recipes. They lead back to this page. Spam primavera anyone? Or, or, Tyrospamites? They sound like boys in the cavalcade of a decadent eastern ruler.

2. Watching a Technicolor film about nuns -- The Black Narcissus -- being seduced by a Himalayan landscape.

3. In the dark it is hard to tell if the wet white flakes blatting on the windscreen are sleet or cherry blossom.


  1. The Black Narcissus movie is from one of Rumer Godden's (a Brit writer, now dead)books. Her memoir of life in India and Britain entitled "A Time to Dance, No Time to Weep" is fascinating, as is the book she wrote with her sister,"Two Under the Sun."--All of her books are worth a read.

  2. I vote for cherry blossoms. It's Spring - time for the fruit trees to flower.
