I spent a couple of hours in the company of my web designer the other day looking again at pictures of the remarkable painted monastery of Moldovita in Romania. They form the header for my website, which is having an overhaul, and this blog. They're remarkable for their warm, vibrant colours. Five hundred years old they still glow, though they've suffered from some wear - and the occasional graffiti.
This one appeared on the cover of my first book fourteen years ago and I have a deep fondness for it.
