  • 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.

    A few quick snaps from Milton Country Park. When I was much younger, there were plans to convert this nature reserve into a sort of outdoor leisure centre, which provoked a campaign called ‘Save Milton Country Park’. Members of the public were invited to write testimonials about what the park meant to them and their families. Very mysteriously, I discovered a few years later that among all the well-argued points in favour of keeping the park as it was (which is what happened), there was an entry in the petition that read: “I like the trees and the sparrows- Jamie Males”. I have no recollection whatsoever of writing this (now notorious) comment, and there is nobody else by my name in this part of the world…
