Jenny is an artist who paints with an axe. She is, she says, cutting my hair in the same ‘broadly intuitive’ way...

Ah, thank you, Claire. I love that my long-standing habit has become yours too. Here’s one of mine I’ve brought to my latest writing break in the shepherd’s hut: pine needles from a special place. I feed little bits into my candle for the smell & the memories it releases...

Far from the madding crowd: doubling-down on solitude & social distancing for what will be a long weekend.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being: ‘Chance alone has a message for us. Everything that occurs out of necessity, everything expected, repeated day in and day out, is mute. Only chance can speak to us.’ — Kundera

From me out in the shepherd’s hut at the foot of the Sussex Downs, surrounded by my : thank you. Fine company to be in here online, among all of you, as well as here with the rooks.

I’ve just been woken from an afternoon nap by roof making noise of a giant sardine tin peeling open! And when I was here - just before you - in Jan, the meadow flooded calf-deep & I had to paddle out in the dark for the loo. But this is why I come each season: sounds, visions.

‘One can no longer hide behind hours spent at the office or the plant (those hours we protest so loudly, which protect us so well from the pain of being alone). I have always wanted to write a novel in which my heroes would say “What would I do without the office?”’ — Camus

It will sit apart from my other books in a small & most precious group - keeping company with Bashō, Chomei & Waley’s Chines Poems. Of that quality - both particular & timeless. Such an achievement.

‘I’m walking empty lanes’: These poems & ink-&-salt brush paintings of birds by James Roberts in WINGED must be among the most exquisite, loving things to emerge during lockdown So glad I ordered a limited edition as artefact of this time:

I: Light a candle every evening; clean house every saturday morning so it's fresh for week ahead; reading old diaries during early morning coffee. Simple, repetitive stuff. A gentle timetable/framework for each day/week. What is working for you?

Oh yes indeed. I am going away from home and family for the time it takes read it. Giving it my full attention near a body of water.
