Something in the Air

My absolute heroine, Tove Jansson. My grandmother's neighbour used to read to me from this very book which sat on a bookshelf outside her kitchen in a village called Bryant's Bottom.

I still dip into her books and am back in the world of sunshine, rowing boats and adventure.

Here's some harmonica...
