Woke up to very thick fog this morning. It still hasn't lifted. Down in the park, it was well HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES  spooky. I rather enjoyed it. dank and wet as it was.
I've not noticed any thinning of the veil, this year. I've been thinking a lot of departed friends, human and animal, but not a peep from anyone; no dreams, nuffink.
The horrid mildness continues, and after braying for weeks about he upcoming killer cold winter, the media now warns of 'the warmest November on record'. Meh!
Must GO somewhere. Still considering Venice at the end of November, disinclined as I feel to do anything at all. Wish I could get someone to come with me...
Enjoyed THE DRESSER on BBC2 last night. I do love that dingy backstage ambiance, and the gloomy little doorkeepers' hutches. I actually still miss those grimy cells!
Listened to Orson Welles' unfilmed screenplay based on HEART OF DARKNESS. (It's still on iPlayer). APOCALYPSE NOW is brilliant of course, but I'd have loved to see what Welles (presumably playing Kurtz-) would have done with this.

Just the other day, I saw a book review in the New York Times you might appreciate:

‘London Fog: The Biography,’ by Christine L. Corton

We'll I can recommend Kiev. A hostel single room is about 2 quid a night, so you could go a bit fancy as we did. Food is very cheap and nom, flights are cheap, and it's very cold!

Really does sound fascinating.I'll definitely keep it in mind.

Venice at the end of November sound like a great time to go. I wouldn't go anywhere near it except in the dead of winter. Not a great place if you have any kind of phobia about getting lost, however (not saying you do, but I certainly didn't enjoy that part). It's virtually impossible not to get hopelessly lost all the time even with a map. If you were with a group, of course, that wouldn't be a problem.

I am terrible for getting lost. No sense of direction at all! I do want to visit Venice, though, and like you, would only consider it in winter.
