Afternoon at Pirot Lake

After a morning making circular wall hangings with Kaspa we all went to Pirot lake for a picnic. The lake was idyllic, quiet and peaceful. It is deeply burried in Troncais forest, a wonderful space for relaxing and picnicing. Second picture - homeward preparations at the end of a full day.

Listening to the Other

Just when I thought I'd got the Guilt book off my hands, an email arrives third morning with the latest version of Listening to the Other from the copy editor. A joy to edit after the last experence as this time the changes are clearly visible thanks to word's tracking facility being turned on. Fantastic! A deadline of the end of the month should be possible, but Other Centred Therapy hits the back burner again. So much for writing three books in a year!

A little visitor

Alena went to wash her brushes in the sink and found a little visitor. This baby dormouse couldn't believe his luck when we rescued him in an old bran flakes box (which still had a few flakes in it). Afterwards he became my friend for life, finding a way in through the drain hole to visit me in the kitchen! So adorable - I felt very mean shooing him out again. Posted by Picasa
