"I write to surprise myself." - Geoffrey Hill.

Professor Dzelzainis used to see Geoffrey Hill in meditative mood in the local graveyard, and wearing bright coloured socks ... but to the matter in hand. If you comment on my blog, and then I follow 'User Profile', the link 'My Webpage' leads to your MySpace site, the specific 'blog' link leads to 'The Library Princess'. Now I have re-found the latter - and I don't know why I missed it before - I have put that link up.
