December fragments #12

The quote: from the eponymous story in Josephine Rowe’s brilliant 2012 collection. The butterfly: discovered in my attic room on arrival at Hawthornden Castle, Scotland, in winter 2010, where I went to work on a novel in which butterflies are everywhere.

How little it takes to be changed, and how difficult to know of it. How little we can see, even from here.

—Josephine Rowe, Tarcutta Wake
