Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

There are so many more variations in the rain than the sun.  What’s up with that? I have only noted 2 distinctive weather moments in the sun and they usually involve other weather elements like the breeze or they are introductory moments/ notes of immediacy. (It’s bright, it’s blue, it’s beautiful, it’s hot, it’s hotter). Sunshine has its own melancholic note. “It won’t last,” people often lament if you remark it’s a beautiful day.

The rain therefore would keep me employed longer as a weather ruminator.


Today shopping for clothes with six people to assist me, still I resent each time I have to take my tee shirt off. Unless it’s a hardware shop, I find shopping tedious indeed.. I think I will maintain my autistic approach to fashion by continuing to wear the uniform of the Black Bloc Anarchist brigade and 1960’s cardigans.

Except coats, shopping for coats is an inspired pursuit.

Coats, hammers, saws & fir wood. Et les livres.
