A Business Meeting



So, we are working on a book together, She and I, and in order to get some time to think about it, off we went for a walk today, over the hills and far away.




I talked to Bella, wise dog, and thought long and hard. The gorse was golden. Ravens chased hawks across blue sky and skylarks called down from way on high. There were bluebells by the badger set. The new foals were everywhere, lounging in warm sunshine. We talked about our book and threw ideas around. The grass is coloured with squil, blue flowers, slightly paler than the bluebells. A first draft is almost written and next week we will take it to a publisher. In the meantime, we just sit and look at the view.

In a life time spent with cats I have never had a ginger one. Sometimes I look at your photos and think that cat-fur couldn't possibly glow that bright orange against the green landscape. Yesterday I went to the local plant nursery and encountered the two resident ginger cats--long-tailed and pointed of face. And indeed, they glowed brightly against all the foliage and flats of colorful flowers. Their eyes were pale green.

Yes, Pixie, you have the right approach. When we write, we need to go for long walks and think before we commit to paper.
You are fortunate that you have your own "colouring-in" person. Most of us have to rely on editors.

my housemate & his wife have to marmalade cats (they don't glow like a ginger, but pretty nonetheless). grey tabbies are attracted to me (have 3). what a glorious day for a meeting!

How I love your beautiful, glowing, poetic ginger trio! It's always such a pleasure to come to your blog and 'meet' them. I share Pixie's opinion about the value of walks for thinking space - especially when one has such a inspiringly gorgeous landscape to do one's thinking in. I'm eager for the book already...
