Back to bed, first lesson and window.

1. I write some beautiful things in the cold electric light, and then go back to bed where it is warm and dark.

2. At the crossing a mother waits with a tiny girl, nappy bulging under her leggings, who wears a large backpack.

3. The road follows the line of the hill, and all the houses have names like Long View and Outlook. Through an open porch door there is a window. The sky beyond squeezes round its red and blue glass centrepiece.

  1. I love sundays in Winter. When I can get up, have a coffe and then back to bed.

  2. Love the contrast between the cold electric light and warm bed.
    So thoroughly enjoy reading your three beautiful things. So captivating!

  3. 3 is fine and original account and evokes something real and recognisable. I'm glad to see the beautiful things are in such good form. I miss seeing you sailing across the Grove.
