You may have heard in conversation that Osiris and I have been watching all of the Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes movies. They’re incredible. We have to watch each one twice because they speak low and all of the characters look alike the first time, so we usually wind up falling asleep. But that means that the second watching is unusually rewarding. O bought an anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories the last time we were in Norfolk. It’s the second of two volumes, and picks up right after Moriarty’s (and Holmes’s alleged) death. Below is Holmes’s account of those events. It is super inspirational. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a damn genius, which I guess is why he got knighted. I wish I could write prose as efficiently or effectively.
