From a letter, May 1991.
“I expect your house in Aurora Terrace really feels like home now. But houses can be altered so easily. I have just acquired a puppy and it makes me think of the house differently, as a series of dog places and non-dog places, depending on the time of day. Nothing stands still for long, even when it has foundations and four walls.””
Please do yourself a favor and read the remembrance written by brilliant writer Elizabeth Knox about another brilliant writer, her friend, Margaret Mahy. (Confession: It made me cry.)
The above is from a letter Mahy wrote to her.
