Haldane and the truffle dream


You take up a biographical subject, and sometimes it's hard to part company with them. At least the relationship with John Scott Haldane (pictured here in the last year of his life, walking the grounds of Government House in Nicosia with his sister Elizabeth) is getting somewhat playful.
He was younger in my dream last night, swimming through underground tunnels (as was indeed his wont), but digging handfuls of white, globulous truffles out of the water and scoffing them with delight.
