Mihail Šiškin "Sinun kirjeesi"

Mihail Šiškin ei ole varmaan kuuluisin venäläinen kirjailija, mutta ehkäpä kunnioitetuin. Hän asui Moskovassa, työskenteli opettajana tavallisessa koulussa ja vuonna 1995 muutti Sveitsiin. Šiškin on ainoa venäläinen kirjailija, joka sai kaikki kolme suurta kirjallisuuden palkintoa Venäjällä – “Kansallinen Bestseller” 386 more words

Down came the rain

The guest picture of the day is another from my sister Mary’s recent visit to the lake District.

I had hoped to get up early and beat the oncoming rain with a quick bike ride  but when I woke at six o’clock, the rain was already beating on the windows so I rolled over and went back to sleep. 599 more words
