A quick visit to Tallinn Airport library (Tallinna Lennujaam)

Geraint Roberts – sügavalt Eestisse kiindunud Wales'i kirjanik – kinkis eile Tallinna Lennujaama raamatukogule oma…

Last Monday, I popped into Talinn Airport to donate a copy of Forest Brothers. The facebook link is above!

The idea is travellers can pick up (or donate) a copy of a book to the library as they pass through. They have set aside a nice area, surrounded by bookshelves (naturally!) and furnished with some very comfortable armchairs. It really feels like an oasis of calm and I heartily recommend it!

The article is only in Estonian, for those not blessed with the language, it talks about my idea of Wales and Estonia being similar in some ways – although one is a nation and the other believes it is a nation!

Both have a love and pride in their language, music, arts and song. Both have big noisy neighbours!

It goes on to say I am going to Saaremaa to research my next book. Not strictly true. I went to Saaremaa to find a nice quiet sandy beach and a cold, dark beer. My research is taking me to Kautla next. More later…

Stuck in a limbo and desperate to do something meaningful, what to do? That is where writing began for me. A creative way of expressing myself and a chance to harness my wondering imagination. I close my eyes and I'm there. Wish I'd picked 'there' as a warm sunny day on a sandy beach, with the waves gently lapping on the shore...but I have to let the story load in my mind, then watch it unfold, wherever it may be. Currently I'm in an Estonian forest being bitten by midges
