The Weekend Wander #3, Photographic Readers and Hygee

hyggespaceWell hello!  Its Friday again, not quite sure how that happened but it did and it is.  Apart from the usual necessary weekend chores and a well over due haircut I’m planning a visit to the Victoria and Albert museum. I’m hoping to see an exhibition exploring the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s through music, fashion, film and politics, and I’m sure to be writing about it here next week.  I shall be continuing my daily letter writing.  If you read last weeks Weekend Wander you will recall me writing about InCoWriMo.  The challenge to hand-write and mail/deliver one letter, card, note or postcard every day during the month of February.  It’s now day 3 and its going well!

If you are looking for something to look at or listen to this weekend, allow me to suggest the following

  • LISTEN: Hygee

Interested in Hygee, then listen to this podcast by Lauren Laverne.  I love Womans hour, and I’m not afraid to admit it. Mostly though I’m not at home to listen to it, so often access it via pod casts and radio i-player.  This week I came across Late Night Womans Hour presented by Lauren Laverne, who I also happen to love. There are a whole library of podcasts to listen to but if you still don’t know what this Hygee thing is then you might wan to listen to this.

  • LOOK: Photographic Readers

This collection of  striking photographs on the bbc website by Steve McCurry all show readers around the world lost in the world of their books. They capture  “the self-possession of the reader, the luminous gaze, the notion of solitude, the relaxed posture, the singularity of effort, the sense of discovery and a suggestion of joy” Paul Theroux.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, have a wonderful weekend.
