I am once more in my blue cottage in Sointula on Malcolm Island for the month of August. It is a time of writing, reading, and relaxing. I have discovered that getting out of New York City for two months every year, in winter and summer, is the way to go. My house is at the corner of 13th Avenue and 3rd, as indicated on the map. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
More news to come, but among the things I have brought with me is a copy of Jane Brown's Goethe's Allegories of Identity, of which I have a review to write.
Goethetc is mostly about Goethe and the 18th century; One Off is about other intellectual and personal interests. Sointula On My Mind has recently (August 2017) been added as a diary of my annual summer idyll.
