Bones edit and the Surrey County Show

Apologies for the very brief list-like blog today, but due to copious editing I am time-poor. As they say.

First off though, here's this morning's meditation:

Meditation 132

In the night
something draws him

to a space
where questions

can be asked
and answers

not truly given,
hearing instead

a flow of words
that sparkle and shift

like moonlight:
fragile, beautiful

and just out of reach.

Beyond that, I have done the following:

1. Completed the final edit of The Bones of Summer and returned it to Dreamspinner Press. Pause for general rejoicing!

2. Lord H and I have had a whistle-stop tour of the Surrey County Show and admired the donkeys and rather bizarre flower arrangements. Does nobody believe in sticking them into vases of water any more? (Flowers, not donkeys ...)

I will also do the below:

1. Watch Springwatch on TV (in 20 mins and we haven't eaten yet, or made a shopping list for this week or done the recycling, so you can see my problem).

2. Watch Ashes to Ashes.

3. Attempt to get my normal non-editing life hat on ready for the rest of the working week. Wish me luck!

Today's nice things:

1. Finishing the Bones edit
2. Poetry
3. Surrey County Show
4. TV.

Well done for getting the final edit done and for one brief moment I did mis-read your flower arranging/donkey comments and wondered why you'd be wanting to stick donkeys into water. (Too much day-time TV not enough real work - lol!)

Thank you! Though, actually, maybe donkeys in water might be a good idea? - they could grow up to be horses!
