an unexpected muse


in the kind that makes you realize that days have drifted by without notice.

the thick scent of autumn that has been drifting in the wind is suddenly pressing down on the leaves and rooftops.

emptiness after finishing a book… continuing to think about, dream about, worry about characters that never existed… a relationship left on untied strings.

an unexpected muse.

it felt so good to have been contacted by such a talented artist- with a beautiful idea… being able to make it work on paper. i absolutely am in LOVE with the outcome. it has been ages since i’ve been able to pick up the paint brush and create something i feel completely happy about.

waiting for children to go back to school, so I can roam without interruption of teenagers hanging in my favourite places. anti-social much?

filling the house with the scent of home-made bread, filling our bellies with it’s goodness.
