While I’m at JFK enjoying airport time (and if any can tell my why my Mac randomly jumped to LA time while I’m sitting in the Soho Bistro in terminal 8 in NYC, let me know), my guest blog has gone live over at The Harry Potter Alliance.

I hear it, and I see an ivy-covered cottage down the road from Churchill’s home, hear an old-man wailing ‘They put it on the public!’ over and over one night in King’s Cross, feel my despair as I begin to fear that my plan to ride a bike from Weston-super-Mare to Glastonbury is proving to be a tragically bad idea, and can taste a pickled onion in a fish shop in Stornoway. A whole month’s worth of memories laid down in a persistant imprint-vulnerable state come down fast and hard, so vivid that I have a hard time believing that I actually experienced them.
