dodging questions and saying goodbye.



we just had to answer a Very Long Questionnaire.

and it has left us quite Bereft of inspiration.

we don’t like Direct Questions (if you hadn’t noticed).

we Much prefer to dodge the question or diffuse or demure (so eighteenth century-with-fan-and-eyelashes) but sometimes one Must respond to the Q&A.

luckily we have other people who can edit and suggest kind modifications and so on.

it’s good to have friends.

and columns in lovely online publications.

that’s especially delicious.

you know what else is delicious?


tea and biscuits with friends at a house and talking about books and life and love and then a walk at twilight and bumping into someone one knows and stopping a while under the moon (burgeoning full) and stars and palm trees while wearing one’s most excellent silver shoes.

another delicious thing is even earlier in the afternoon – not quite warm enough for a wrap, so it hangs over one’s (slightly narrow) shoulder – and stopping to smell the roses.


but there is also sadness which makes the delicious things that-much-sweeter because life is so Ephemeral and Fleeting.

this pains us to say but we wanted to record the passing of sophie.

our hearts and arms go out to envelop blair in his loss.

  1. my dog Jake, a Poosh, turns 10 this Saturday. i will tickle his chest and behind his ear, and think of Sophie. tony

  2. Hmmm. I wish I were more eloquent. I wish I were more enlightened but I do hate to hear of any loss or passing. I even got choked up at Maggie’s funeral. Hope Blair starts to smile instead of get sad when thinking of Sophie…

  3. I am so sorry to hear of Sophie’s passing. Our furry friends mean so much to us and the connection between those two is palpable in your photo. Also sending my sincere condolences to Blair.

do say something - do :-)
