L is for...

Learner: Life long learning. Yes, I believe in that.

Lists: I like lists, inventories, catalogues, inumerations... It may be a genetic quirk that I have inherited from my mother who keeps a constant list on the go of all the things she has to do. I enjoy Roddy Lumsden's 'Vitamin Q' blog and have occasionally contributed lists to it such as this one called 'Acquired Tastes'.

Leonardo Da Vinci: art, science, poetry, recipes, ideas... The original rennaissance man who's imagination was stirred by anything and everything.

Liverpool: I lived there as a student. Great place, in its own way.

Licorice... just because I like it. But not Pomfret cakes. Yuk.

London Magazine: One of the best literary magazine the 20th Century has produced and my personal favourite.

Latin: I spent seven years learning it, sometimes under terrifying conditions. Still, I don't regret it. Somewhere, deep inside my brain, it's all still lurking...

Loyalty: it's good to have loyal friends.

Levi-Strauss: (Claude) who was supposed to be a steady ingredient of this blog. I'll write more about him one of these days.

Luck: happy-go-lucky. That's me.


This is a meme. It works like this: If you'd like to play, leave a comment. I'll give you a letter. Then you post ten words beginning with that letter in your blog and explain why they're important enough to you.

Clare Dudman (Keeper of the Snails) gave me 'L'

Okay, how about 'F' for fox?

And best of luck. It's not easy...

THanks for introducing me to London Magazine--which I haven't seen. This looks like fun. I'll take a letter, as long as it's not x or q.

Jonathan Wonham said...

Hello Patry, how about 'M' for magazine?
