Napoleona’s birthday is tomorrow, so I’ll post pictures of her party from this weekend then. Did I mention a party? We also went to a going-away party for some work colleagues on Sunday. Ergo, no blogging over the last few days.
But I do want to quickly share this article from the Guardian online about Dylan Thomas‘s daughter Aeronwy and his play Under Milk Wood. I went through a phase of loving his poetry when I was a girl–I even wrote a poem dedicated to him, which I am 90% glad/10% sad that I no longer have, because I’m sure it was mortifyingly bad.
I’m always fascinated by learning about people’s lives, their biographies, and how their life situations affected their work. And I’m also willing to laugh at my younger self for not noticing the joke in the name of the town in the play! (see photo)
