8th May – The waning Super Moon was super yellow tonight.
9th May – The two cafés at the local shops are both owned by Greeks. I asked the owner of one if he was related to the owner of the other, and he said, ‘Yes, he’s the godfather of my children and I’m the godfather of his children’. I tried to get him to confirm they aren’t from the same family, but he wouldn’t really agree. I saw that he had redefined family for me.
10th May – This week I’ve been feeling really confident about my car because it’s French. Today its engine died.
11th May – Home alone. Studied two novels set in monasteries and two documentaries about the unchanging rhythm and solitude of monastic life.
12th May – Drove a car today that has no hand brake. But it has a button. A finger brake.
