Went for coffee today in a wee place round the corner from my flat that I’d really wanted to try, Vienna. It was lovely…

Still reading Human Traces, really enjoying it. Here’s a wee quote I treasure:

“But, Madame, tell me one thing. Why is it that you need to be reassured? If I was like you I would wake up every day and thank God for everything he has given me. I would not need to be told every day how fortunate I was. I would still remember from the day before!”

(Guillaume, to Sonia, p. 68)
