The Tale of Sorrow – Part 7










Awwwwwww… Aren’t babies cute when they stop all that wailing and bawling and shrieking until your nerves are frayed at the edges and you feel like your eyeballs are going to explode out of your head and your ears might melt into rivers of blood? I don’t have any kids.

What’s next for the moonstruck babe? Has anybody fed the peacocks lately? Will these drawings improve at all by next week? Does anybody care? All these questions and less may or may not be ignored next time, which may or may not be next week. See you then!

Thanks to Cee for this week’s probing questions.

How many languages do you you speak?

Only this one.  Though I can ask you to fill out a form and give basic directions in Russian. Spakoina Nocha.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

The Tao of Pooh, a couple of biographies and The Seven Basic Plots.  Also loads of blogs, obviously.

Follow The Money, The Leftovers, YouTube tutorials on things I’ll probably never do.

Elbow, The Stranglers, Tame Impala, Nirvana and lots of Bananarama (for some reason) (the latter NOT my choice!)  Also Max Richter and Johan Johannsson. Birdsong and catwail.



What was the last photo you took with your phone?

I actually filmed a swollen stream after the rain.  Dog walking distractions.  It was quite meditative with the dripping ferns.  The last photo was of creeping buttercup.

What is your favourite time of day?

Dawn is undoubtedly the most magical time of day but I rarely see it as I am such a terrible night owl.  Sunset can be a treat for the eyes but I’m really firing on all cylinders at midnight.  I do like a nice walk on a moonlit night, there’s something extra special about a moonshadow.
