A little of this and a little of that ....
Last night, with a new project in mind and a need for wise counsel, I had dinner with a lovely couple here in the city and you know how it is when you get to spend time with people you like and respect, discussing an idea you are quite passionate about ... it was a really good evening for me.
I came away with a belly full of lovely food and that buzz of energy and anticipation not felt in a while.
Of course, today I have to smile at the potential for book and paper avalanches here on my desk. I'm still working on the photographs from Saturday's concert and 'the' website-in-development-forever is about to go live and just needs loaded. Somehow all the recipes that don't fit in the book have found their way onto my desk and there's an ever-growing pile of tissues here too. I have been sitting so quietly, hoping my immunity was up to scratch while I shared my space with all these sick people ... let's see how that pans out in the days ahead.
I had an odd craving for chocolate and a drink full of fizz ... but it didn't help, just for a moment maybe, meanwhile there's this huge pot of cleansing-type soup sitting on my stove, demanding my attention, and my body's not too happy with my apparent disregard for it in recent months.
My knee, despite ignoring it since Flanders Fields, is having some kind of tantrum, so yes ... the net is about to be cast both far and wide as I head into winter and projects.
The photograph was taken at the beginning of the Gnauoua Family concert, they came on stage and danced around this while playing their music. It was a little bit of magic ...
