images from this writing week

A few images from the day, first, the talis-ponies, crow feather from the labyrinth path back at November Hill, and the talis-woman I brought home last night, who is already lending her charms to the writing:



Next, a view of the wintering long beds, and beyond, the goldfish pond that in summers has bullfrogs singing all night long:



A rear view of the big house, the magic mansion; in every shadowed window I see stories being formed and shaped:

Love all the pictures, the taliswoman is my favorite though. You were lucky to find her. Glad you're back.

Billie, I'm on my way. That looks more like high summer to me...

Not back yet, and in fact, still working hard - I ran a pen out of ink this morning. :)

Sheaffer, I can just see your stately profile in the garden, nibbling at some overgrown grass while the fountain in the pond cascades behind you.

Today there's a classical music concert downstairs in the great room, so we will be serenaded as we compose our stories upstairs.

When you finally come home again (and fly down from those beautiful clouds you were in all week) all you'll need to do to become inspired again is to just imagine your magical week spent there. ;)
