"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

My little lake, at 9:00 on this cool, clear October morning, with mist rising from the water.

the little lake at 9 a.m.

The final fig off my prolific tree...harvest is over. Shadow and Lola are appropriately worshipful.

My pet chipmunk Diesel, in hyper-gathering mode, impatiently waiting at the feeding dish.
