Shaking Off Some of the Dust
So I think I haven't loved the past few 44 Scotland Streets. They are just too much of the same, and I have little patience for all the philosophical digressions. But I have to say, I think this was changed it up a bit. Definitely in respects to Bertie, where he finally gets out from under his mother's thumb, and what a joy it is to be out. But I thought the other stories were somewhat fresh as well, and the characters themselves mostly refreshingly unphilosophical. I can't say no digressions, but kept light. It was mostly story. And, though in some cases, the stories had that 44 Scotland St feel where they never really went anywhere, in a few cases, things seem to resolve actually.
So it wasn't too different than usual of course, but it seemed back into a better groove, at least from the way I felt about it. Here's to continuing to shake things up on Scotland Street.
