When time stops

SOMETHING HAPPENED. Yesterday, a watch stopped. Hers. 7.45PM. This was the second time this kind of thing had happened. That is, a watch stopping. That time, his. 8.15PM.

A letter to guests of 3N

ALMOST THERE, now. Once the date is set this sort of moves pretty quickly: finalising the guestlist, sharing the agenda, confirming that you can be there, making sure you know where we’re meeting. That kind of thing. Just like any great party, you have to do all the detail stuff way ahead of time, right? […]
