"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

Some images of the past several days here on the Big Lake.

The motorship passes by on Sunday morning.

Our freshly painted cottage is a glory to behold.

Autumn has only just arrived--officially--and already the front yard is filling with colour.

The weather has been magical, though excessively windy from Saturday night through Sunday night.

Yesterday the Chap departed, leaving four bitches (I include myself in the total!) in residence to enjoy the view and the solitude. Scarcely a boat passes by.

We returned from our walk a little while ago. As I sat on the porch sipping my wine, a floatplane flew low over the Bay and landed just out of my sight. I had the prospect of a fine shot of sunset with plane taking off--but the sun descends so quickly over the mountain these days that it didn't happen.
