"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

Big Day in Da House

We heard the Governor's State of the State Address. It was a joint session with the Senate, also attended by the Executive Council, the Chief Justice and some of the Supreme and Superiour Courts, and the Senate "entourage" and staff, which included a dear priest friend of mine, newly apointed as Senate chaplain.

The media were out in force. Here's my picture of the picture-takers.

There were more of them, public and commercial tv, alongside the wall. Those are the ones who'll be responsible if I turn up on the evening news.
