So lucky.


To know the sweet Marie and her gracious parents, who serve beautiful lunches under giant plane trees, to a sundry band of internet gypsies who've come to feel like old friends. Wildly luminous red pepper mousse... a bottomless bowl of cherries, tender little chickens, warm blackberry crumble with clotted cream. And the heavy head of a black Labrador resting on my lap.

Thanks Lily - your gratitude and way of capturing the experience is beautiful. You are an artist with words.

Oh nothing says hungry as eloquently as a lab's trusting head in the lap or on the leg.

Ben misses you...he's a great judge of character. I like the idea of a band of Internet gypsies x
