  • How do you do?
    I'm Jamie; an incurably-curious, hopelessly-idealistic, vegetarian, polyglot-ish plant scientist at Cambridge. I spend too much time listening to music, wandering around the countryside, and eating apples.


    penchants: forest walks, benjamin britten, mediaeval history & literature, eastern philosophy, obscure tea blends, copperplate, twilight by the sea, quantum mechanics, thunderstorms, fruit trees, early music, dragonflies, postcards, underground railways, gardening, vapour trails, tiny art galleries, volcanic islands, moths, Virginia Woolf, gin cocktails, travel journals, mountain air, handwriting, continental cinema, bow ties, Lebanese food, historical linguistics, archery, all things Icelandic, & bitter-sweet lemonade.
    Thank you for stopping by; do say hello.

    Having to drink coffee to keep me awake so I can watch the last couple of holes of today’s play at the Masters. Coffee. Ugh.

    On a completely unrelated note, isn’t it bizarre that we live at a point in history when, if all the projections and predictions are correct, human population size has just exceeded carrying capacity (hard to define, I know) and will soon go into decline?

    (Edit: ignore my ramblings. My little mind is easily confused by the battle between tiredness and caffeine.)
