About Me
"But you wouldn't want a wife who wrote books, would you?"

"But I should; it would be great fun. So much more interesting than the ordinary kind that is only keen on clothes and people. Though of course, clothes and people are all right too, in moderation. I don't mean to say I object to clothes."

--Dorothy L. Sayers, "Strong Poison"

"No one who has not experienced it can fully appreciate the unfailing fascination of this tranquil voyaging. The movement of the narrow boat is like nothing else in the world. ... Stand on Cressy's fore deck with eyes closed, and no sense of motion is left, open them and you see the bluff bows gliding over the still water, while the ever-changing scene of trees and hills, fields and farms drifts past at so measured a pace that the eye has full time to ponder every detail."

--L. T. C. Rolt, "Narrow Boat"
