|Madonna with the Iris -- workshop of Albrecht Durer|
1. This week I have two tightly-written books on my desk. They just need a few pats and queries to get them into shape.
2. I run a writing workshop based on paintings -- like this one above -- from the National Portrait Gallery and one of us has the joyful experience of a poem popping out almost fully formed.
3. To take a phone call in the garden on a hot evening.
