Pool, gold, card, shadow

At the beach this morning the dogs were dogs and the people were shadows.

At the beach this morning I left a gilded stone, as the tide was coming in. The stone came from Porlock Weir. It’s harbour is a stone bowl carved by the sea. It may remain, or the sea may take it, or someone may find it.

At home today I tried to settle to work. And I found two postcards with special stamps.

They have sold now, with money donated to The Lost Words for Bournemouth and Poole

There are also three new luggage tag otters, £50 each, money to Lost Words for Bournemouth and Poole, as above, and will see five copies of the book into five schools for each tag. Again email me before donating, with ‘otter left’, ‘otter right’ (SOLD) or ‘otter middle’ as subject matter. Two are questioning souls, and the other is two river dancers.

There’s a small amount of room on the sofa this evening, so I will grab it while I can. And did I say, I bought a ladder for the cats? Seemed like a good idea at the time, but as I brought it in to the house the ladder got bigger and the house got smaller.

Also, I think it is time I inked some cats again, as that is what I bought the ink for some years ago. This old blog post, from 2012, shows very early ink, with help.

About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    On the subject of Dangerous Coats……. Cardigans, too. Cardis, with pockets in them, with things in the pockets. Oh yes.
