I just had to share this quick update and bizarre coincidence. I took a little break around 5pm and started the book I brought with me (don’t worry I’m not procrastinating too much I’m only on p43 and I’ve written more than 2,000 words).
As you know the bed and breakfast is called Cimarron, this also happens to be the name of a novel and a film that was made in 1931 and again in 1960. In my room they have a poster from the 1960 film – nice.
So I start reading Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford which is about a Chinese-American orphan in Depression-era Seattle. A tiny detail in the first pages, they allocate all the boys the same birthday at the orphanage and take them out for a fun day in their dreary lives. They go to the cinema and the movie that is on – Cimarron. I could not believe the coincidence! Spooky!
