Hi, I’m Bron. I’m from South Africa and have been living in Japan for the past four years, teaching English. Before that I worked for about ten years as a book editor, with some writing in between.
This blog is a record of the things that interest and inspire me – insights from poets, philosophers, essayists, artists, psychologists, novelists and others.
I’ve added links to all the books, podcasts and essays I reference, and I hope that among them you may find something interesting, inspiring or helpful. Please feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you. And if you’d like to receive updates on new posts, please subscribe via email or follow me on WordPress.
The painting used in the banner of this site is by my mother Lynn Mary McLennan, née Lewis (1948–1997). The title is inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem ‘Entering’.
