The past week's real and metaphorical sunshine:
A long weekend in Cascais. A wonderful, scenic train journey along the coast to have custard tarts in Belém, but not a great deal else apart from appreciating the sun and warmth, reading Woolf (me) and Andrew Williams (Simon), lazing, eating sardines, trying some lovely regional wines. We also saw the Paula Rego paintings in the ultra-modern museum in Cascais. Unsettling stuff, amazing building.
Moonrise Kingdom at the cinema. Wonderful palette, beautiful styling, very funny. Just a little too hectic towards the end, but for the most part beautifully modulated.
Look forward to getting a copy of Swimming Studies by Leanne Shapton - an appropriately wet subject for this summer.
