"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

Whose Chair Is It?

It's not just the humans who love sitting on the porch at the lake cottage.

Jewel takes full advantage of the seat and the scenery.

She knows that it's my favourite chair.

I've been here since Thursday, after an after noon of Concord errands which included a reception for a fellow State Rep retiring after 18 terms in the House. (That's 36 years of public service.) A huge turnout of leadership, House colleagues, nonprofit and state agencies, and her family members.

Then I dashed back to the Lodge and the girls and I came up here to enjoy 2 perfect days--sunny, warm, still. The Chap joined us yesterday afternoon. We aren't staying the full weekend due to other commitments but some of us will soon return...

...to the best and comfiest chair on the porch.
