Thank you! I love the idea of your scrolls Tanya & your sense of the physicality of writing. And how we both revelled in the joy of words in our programmes. We have a gorgeous Lido in Reading. Let me know if you’re ever nearby.

Love this; tiny forwards movement. My whole mile of writing was fuelled by this in Rich: ‘freedom is daily, prose-bound, routine remembering. Putting together, inch by inch the starry worlds.’ Your book is all about that. Keep going; I & others will be grateful

Those lines from him are close to the end of my two-year mile of writing - last word of which (of 100,000 done with no drafts) I completed just before a midnight during a residency near Lake Geneva. All alone by a huge dark window near Jura Mountains: no one to see.

Reading, as is my new routine, atop Firle Beacon. Felt myself being watched. Looked up and found myself eye to eye with a kestrel, less than three feet away, only a windscreen & car bonnet between us. Just regarded each other without moving a minute or more.

Reading a book a day & counting crows, rooks and jackdaws from my wind-rocked car on Firle Beacon every weekday til new year. Self-granted sabbatical after almost seven slow years of turning myself into a writer & editor.
