With all that’s happening in the world, and in my own life, it was nice to take a little time this morning to think, write, watch the wind blow debris all over the lawn — and enjoy breakfast.

The weather is being kind to us at the moment, and the Big T was on dinner duty. Cue BBQ prawns, with a tomato and coriander salad and some fresh basil oil. Enjoyed al fresco of course!

I mentioned in yesterday’s post about spending time in my friend Claire‘s art studio. It was an interesting experience for me, sharing a creative space with others, but working on my own project.

I’m sure the space itself — well-lit, colourful and joyous — helps the creative process.

My artist friend Claire Delaney works from a studio that manages to be simultaneously a tranquil creative space and an Aladdin’s Cave of curiosities and treasures. I spent time there yesterday; thinking, writing and taking photos.

Hanging on a wall she has a clown puppet whose face offered such ambiguity of expression, I couldn’t resist editing two shots together.
