Rain postponed play

Was going to walk along Regents Canal yesterday but the rainy weather and wind (more like November than August) mean't I stayed in doors and read The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon instead. About the 'frozen chosen' in Sitka. Chabon imagines what would have happened if the proposed resettlement of Jews had happened in Alaska. A imagined place where they speak Yiddish and the street names are redolent of the places they fled from. I feel I've been very very far away.
