Words of Wisdom


Arriving home from Italy in the dark, suitcases in tow, we had trouble opening the front door: a great mound of mail fought us back. Despite my tiredness, I enjoyed a frisson of excitement at all those envelopes.


Of course, they mostly turned out to contain bank statements, pizza-house menus, bills & flyers canvasing for the election. I did extract a few nice bits from the pile though: a couple of outstanding cheques for workshops, a premium bond win of £25 and, best of all, an A4 envelope containing a copy of Writing Magazine.

Yes, this is the month that they are publishing my words of wisdom (!). You probably won't remember but, way back in the new year, I wrote an article about my work and the relationship between words and text in a picture book. I had forgotten all about it too!



I'm really pleased with how it looks. It's an interesting magazine too. So rush out and buy a copy and you can read my wisdom for yourself (although you've probably had quite enough of my ramblings by now...).

This is cool lynne- I will look for a copy at the store. How's the foot these days??

Have a nice day:)

Thanks folks.

One foot is fine now Mary Lou, but the right one, that had the double-blast, is giving me a little pain again at the moment. But that is expected: it has to get a little worse before it gets better!

I always knew you had wise words Lynne. I'll go out and pick up a copy right now. Well... after lunch anyway.
