the higher common sense

"Well, when I am fifty-three or so, I would like to write a novel as good as Persuasion but with a modern setting, of course. For the next thirty years or so I shall be collecting material for it. If anyone asks me what I work at, I shall say, 'Collecting material.' No one can object to that."

Unless noted otherwise, most of the pictures are not my own, so please let me know if you'd like me to remove an image!
