What a wonderful talk, Martin. I wish I'd been there to hear you give it in person. I took the liberty of mentioning it on my blog. I hope you don't mind.

Your thoughts on mental travel put me in mind of one of my writerly heroes, Gerald Murnane, who never leaves home, has never left Australia and still he writes about the plains of Idaho, the gypsies in Hungary and many other foreign people and places, all out of his own imagination and from his reading.
