First to a place with my new favorite town name - Blaenau Ffestiniog - to wander the slate heaps, fog, mines, and to sink my hands into my ancestral soil.
Then I'll be in London for the Historical Materialism conference, which looks better than ever. I'll be talking about hostile objects, sabotage, gremlins, ruined silk, and money made of meat.
If any of you are around the city then, let me know.
Blog will return in full when I get back, with writing, and before that, as always when I leave where I live, with more photos of walls, stains, incongruous advertisements, trash, and very few people.
