Dry ground, the meeting and what have you brought.



Here is the Blue Monday film made by Kent TV video journalist Tom Chown. Yesterday on Twitter he was complaining that I didn't make him a beautiful thing. Perhaps by rights he should have been, because the interview was a lot easier than I thought. I was afraid that I would gabble, or dry up, or say something ridiculous; but it was all good. It felt just like having a chat, so I relaxed and almost enjoyed it.

3. Anna's youngest wonders about the bundle wrapped in a red and white tea towl that I've brought with me. "It's a... why don't you open it?" says Anna. And even an ordinary loaf of bread is a source of wonder.
