  3. Toby feeling sorry for himself, outside in the heat, where he demanded to go. Sometimes I wonder about that cat.

    Looking up at a pair of gnarled, vine-choked Black Locust trees (Robinia pseudoacacia). They are surprisingly still alive, and every May display showy white clusters of extremely fragrant flowers.

    Some watery sunshine this morning without any wind. At last.

    Tough day, snow was supposed to be a coating to an inch, turned out to be closer to six inches. So between working on projects, I was out several times blowing out the driveway and the walk. Slim pickings for a thoughtful photo - Junior dog is looking at me expectantly - either I provide her with a treat, let her out the back or feed her an early dinner.

    A busy day left only time for a late lunch at a place called Table 33. Hope was serving food and drinks and was pleased to let me take her photo. Turns out she is creative and is experimenting with 'film' photography.

    Day Thirty - the wrong time to put down the book

    ‘Are you okay”, the voice asks. I look up from my book and see a concerned look on the conductor’s face. Everyone but me has disembarked from the train. I put my book down and mumble something about waiting for the crowd to pass. I never like getting off at this platform. It’s narrow, long and half the people on it are in a hurry, late for the work, and the other half are intent to get in their way. I always wait, neither wanting to be one or the other. The book though, after days of struggling to find my way in, has finally caught my interest. I don’t want to put it down. But work ... and the conductor, well, they insist I do.

    At lunch time I only have time for coffee then straight to a meeting. No time for photos, no time for my book. At night, I find inspiration while washing the dishes (shhhhhh, before making tea). Me, dried leaves, a calendar and white floaty bubbles mashed together. Now back to the book ...
