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.
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.
