Vanessa Bell's cover design for To the Lighthouse
A day of writing, talking, listening and laughing with Sandy and Steph. Early Downland daffodils bloom in Sandy's village. The sun's warm. We sit in the study, surrounded by books and bird bones; eating hot cross buns; being visited by cats; passing ideas, confessions, impressions, between one another; catching thoughts, nodding in agreement; adding link by link to the chain of conversation. Again, I remember the importance of collaboration to my work, of friendship. We warm one another, bring spring to our wintry solitude.
