Writing Update: Familiar Face

Indigo Bookstore

Writing Companion:


We were not far from the cairn, and he and I were indians, hiding from the others, pretending we were one with the trees and the earth. We lay on the ground, bare-chested, necks raised to look through the brush. Our mothers would later wonder over their laundry: why did our white shirts stay so clean while our trousers so stained that they must have buried in the top soil.


At the end of a very busy day, I had a few minutes at an Indigo Bookstore coffee shop. And while I wasn't sure I'd have the energy to write, seeing my book on the shelves there got my creative juices flowing. Ended up being a productive session, as I started on the second part of the book. 

Always a welcome sight
