bristol festival of ideas


Hello! Tonight I will see you at the Bristol Ideas Festival, my last stop in the UK leg of book events. I had a week between Leeds Thought Bubble and Bristol Ideas so I went for the first time to the Braes of Lochaber in Scotland, where both my mother and father and indeed most of my home village of Mabou trace their roots to. It was beautiful, and the people there made me welcome, invited me into their homes when I had come alone knowing no one, and showed me all the places I was connected to. I will never forget it, and I am proud to be connected at all to such fine people. 

 On top of all this, there were ponies. 

 See you back in Canada next,
