Just because you miss someone, it doesn’t mean you should go back to them. Sometimes you have to just keep missing them until you wake up one morning and realise that you don’t anymore

Frugality is one of the most beautiful and joyful words in the English language, and yet one that we are culturally cut off from understanding and enjoying. The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.

I really enjoyed this. I read Gorky Park when I was in Russia but I didn’t really ‘read’ it, there was too much going on and I barely followed it which is a shame. As a result I didn’t like it that much but felt as though I should. Martin Cruz Smith has a wonderful way with words though, and the evocation of Russia is beguiling.

I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.
