A small hello from the world beside my desk before starting on some copper plates. The sunsets are creeping up and making it harder to catch a bit of daylight to work by. The rooftops are emptier too, except for the occasional return of the gulls that hatched a few months ago. These end of summer days roar by so quickly. Yesterday we sat down on some driftwood at the seashore. Some dolphins went leaping through the waves down the beach and back up it again, and the whole evening was gone, just like that. Perhaps I need a little pad of paper with me so I can pin some of these moments down on the pages. There is a stack of wood by the fireplace now, waiting for the cold nights.
