I'm so sad. One of the sweetest cats in the world our Goa fellow: Bipin Rasam Shitten was killed in a hit and run yesterday. We buried him in the garden near the balcao. My insides twist when I suddenly remember through moments of trying to forget. Reading Joyce Carol Oates Missing Mom a novel based on her own mother and loss. This sentence is prescient it jumped out at me two days ago. Of course we'll never know it's the last time so I'll say I love you frequently and often. #nowreading…

We make funny faces after a day of writing at a beach shack. Short one and tall one. We're happy. Sea in the background sunset bursting into my hair. #goanway #meandyou #morjim

Last night caught the Noronha's brothers just before they closed watched loads of cars stop and ask for the way to "Anjuna" or "Baga." In the absence of a real mixer at the performance I was at before I drank Black Jewel with water and the world began to take on that personality too. This cat was my spirit animal. #goanway #catsagram

In preparation for Goat Festival here's a nice photo of my new flower clip and like my face also. Pregaming at our favourite:Verandah. Sweaty face for that nice glow. #goanway #goatfestival #sovain

None the worse for wear after several hours of dancing at Goat Festival although I haven't gotten out of bed to test my legs yet. Goat Festival was supposed to be this three day two venue immersive hipster festival but thanks to the Goa elections they had to downsize. Felt quite bad for the festival organiserswhat a waste. My thoughts on the festival?Magnetic Fields it was not Marbella (the venue) overpriced and slightly douchey but the line up was great. Enjoyed headliner Gilles Peterson…

@samitbasu always gives the best book presents. He came over yesterday with a pile of Sookie Stackhouse books: a series about vampires and crime set in rural Louisiana also more famous as the True Blood novels. I've never read Twilight and mostly the vampire genre has to passed me by but these are RIVETING. I swear my canine teeth are growing more defined as I read. #nowreading #bookstagram #150in2017 #mrmbookclub

I hesitate to say "best fish thaali in Goa" because then all the "real" Goans will be like "really? Have you tried such and such? No? Then your information is incomplete." but for the last two months we have tried fish thaalis at at least seven or eight different places and this one is the best we found. Catherine's Corner is a little shop selling snacks like prawn patties or beef rolls but also fish plates at lunchtime and MAN it is excellent. I normally just eat the curry and the fried…

I will always order the thing with avocado. This time it was the heft in a tuna salad at Orange Boom. Plus because we had to eat all the food: peri peri chicken steak a side of English bangers and a Croque Monsuier. Delhi I return to you well fed and well loved. #orangeyouglad #goanway #eatinglikeatourist

Last beach day for this trip! Sad. But also beach so happy. We should all aim to be this dog napping on the deck of Pink Orange. I have kokum soda the third in my vampire novel series and my swimsuit on under this dress. #goanway #morjim

Delhi again. The cats are HUGE compared to the dainty Goan ones Bruno and Olga wouldn't be petted when I came in last night but Squishy gave me an elaborate greeting ending with a "are you ever going to feed me?" bite on my wrist. Then they settled themselves down in bed heavy bolsters that wouldn't move. This morning I potter around to see if everything is as I remember my study the kitchen the pool of sunlight in the living room. There have been technical difficulties with the water while…
