Memories of Paddington #SOL


Just a sliver of a slice with a big dollop of Devon cream as I’m traveling in the UK at the moment!

Recently Michael Bond, the author of the Paddington books, passed away. I have such fond memories of these books, as my father read all of them to me when I was little. Every night we’d snuggle up on the couch in the living room, laughing together at the latest escapades of this delightful character so lovingly created by Mr. Bond. While passing through Paddington Station on Friday, I was struck by the memorial to him that has cropped up at the statue of his iconic bear. There were bouquets, heartfelt notes, and even jars of marmalade, Paddington’s favorite treat. What a lovely tribute.


Many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life each Tuesday. Won’t you join us?
