K. Reed Needles is Robertson Davies

Here's a wonderful one-man show at Hart House Theatre, University of Toronto which I would go to if I were in Toronto right now. Scripted and directed by John Krisak, it features K. Reed Needles (I used to know him without the K) as Canadian writer Robertson Davies whose Deptford Trilogy I absolutely love. It's on from March 3-6. I'm afraid I can't credit this photo as I found it on my U of T Alumni newsletter and no credit is given. (Corrections happily accepted.)

Ogham Alphabet

If you are interested in things Celtic, here's a fascinating site my sister Pat pointed out to me: http://ogham.lyberty.com:80/oghamintro.html.

Pat's Art Blog


I've already mentioned my artist sisters and here is another one. You can visit her blog at: http://patburnesphotos.blogspot.com. A lot of her work (all of it?) is inspired by Bray, County Wicklow, our home town. In fact, one of her exhibitions was called Topophilia, which means "love of place." I guess it runs in the family. Many of my books begin in Bray. Here is a photo of Bray Head, which features prominently in The Summer King (photo credit: Pat Burnes, pinched off her blog site!)
