En route


Samuel Johnson said, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.

I have suffered a longing for its wet streets and cloisters of late, so now speed there happily for a handful of days, and proceeding thence directly to Berlin. Forgive me if I do not correspond. I shall be occupied in my entirety with the clamour and brilliance of those cities.

Godspeed.

May the road rise to meet you and the wind be at your back, dear Young.

If I do not correspond, I shall nevertheless be thinking of you both, and looking forward to returning to your pleasant company. Enjah, please make sure Osprey doesn't entirely go to seed. Her green man transformations are dangerous and not easily reversed once she has taken root.

O Dear! I shall be on the lookout for rooting tendencies ... *stares at Osprey's bare feet*!
