"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have ecome 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

In Like A Lion
To Ruth's delight, and Jewel's bemusement, we are receiving the predicted amount of snowfall.
March is typically our snowiest month, and in this winter of sub-normal precipitation it's actually comforting to have about 8 inches of white stuff on the ground. Flurries began on Leap Day, as I attended a meeting and did some errands, and by bedtime only an inch or two had fallen. Lots more since then, and it's snowing all day. I'm happily hibernating here at the Lodge.
It's St. David's Day, the National Day of Wales and the Welsh. In past times folks pinned leeks to their clothes...nowadays daffodils suffice.
Dydd Gwŷl Dewi Sant hapus!
