Another card arrived today, a Christmas star poem from little princess Éfhelìnye with a Lewis Carroll card. A count of the cards on my mantelpiece comes to twelve. They have all come. A successful return for the cards I sent out.

I went into town today looking for the new Gin Wigmore CD Gravel and Wine. I confess to being disappointed. Heavy use of drums and bass guitar obscured her voice and moments of this album sounded like white noise to me. The title of the album came from the first song which I found was the first piece on my initial hearing.
