In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away….
Antoine de St. Exupery, Wind, Sand and Stars
Seasoned readers of this blog may have noticed, in the last few weeks, a certain lack of the great long screeds that used to appear here, the snippets of scandalous gossip, the explorations of nakedness and all that that means, and the profound wisdom of deeply serious posts about spiritual subjects. Instead there have been videos of elephants, the odd quote, and some e-fluff as it’s called. This has been because I’ve been hard at work finishing The Book of English Magic and preparing for a visit to India.
While I’m away I’ve asked some friends to be ‘guest bloggers’ – I hope you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
