This morning at about 6 I went for a run. I’m not exactly made for jogging, but my bike’s in the shop, so what can you do. I live in Kalk Bay, and on my way home over Boyes Drive, I got a courteous nod from a woman I recognised as the author of the novel I was reading last night.
Call it serendipity or whatever, I know Finuala Dowling lives locally and I suppose thats part of why I’m reading her book, but it seemed like an appropriate happenstance to launch into this journal. Her writing is very much grounded in and inspired by her local environment and its geography, which is something I can relate to, having grown up around here.
