  • Art After Dark

    This evening I went to ‘Art After Dark’, an outdoor event at the hipster enclave of Gilman Barracks, where there were lots of art exhibits, some live music, and a lot of pop-up restaurants.

  • Hiding in the dark

    To escape the heat of Montreal, we hired a car and drove down to Jolliet, a town about 45 minutes into the countryside. There, our friends have a cottage by the river so our assorted children could play in the water while we parents drank beer and wondered why it was still so damn hot. […]

  • The darkness of Palo Alto

  • New socks please, we’re British

  • Sundown 2014

    Sundown 2014

    This morning, I finished the Sundown, which, despite putting in a worse time than 2013 (and an even worse time than 2012) was fairly miraculous, given that a few hours before the start I’d been contemplating sacking the whole thing off for lack of preparation and being too tired from the day’s activities.
