"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

Self Portrait with Beasts

A group portrait of the cottagers, made possible by a tripod and self-timer. This must suffice till the Chap's around to serve as official event photographer.

High-key and backlighting by Mother Nature.

Tucked into our cottage photo album is a 1992 photo of me sitting on the stair down to the dock, wearing the very same shirt as in the above. Lacking a scanner at this house, I cannot digitise it so you can decide which of us, the shirt or the wearer, has aged more gracefully over the last decade and a half.
