I suppose that the little learning that I refer to represents a couple of steps across a bridge to a different place. I apologise if the link is tenuous but It’s the best I can manage as a link between photo and what I have written today.
The bridge in the photo is at Llanrwst in Snowdonia, North Wales, UK. The photo was taken in October 2019 and, despite the blue skies and sunshine, it had just started raining quite heavily. I used my Pentax K-1, 36M, full frame camera with a 15-30mm, f/2.8 lens at 27mm and f/8. The camera settings were ISO 400 and 1/125 seconds. The shot was handheld as I rested my elbows on a concrete ledge.
Today I managed a further 4,000 words to describe three scenes. Gareth has suggested to Sandra that, one way for them to begin their learning about each other, would be for them to do their weekly supermarket shopping together on the evening before their first planned get-together since acknowledgement of their romantic feelings. The experience leads to some minor bickering, but it is good natured. On the Saturday, when they meet at his house, as she looks around, she has more than momentary qualms as she realises what she might be committing to. She is reassured when she explains her fears. Soon they prepare a meal together and compare notes about what might constitute red-lines regarding traits that they could discover – such as unfaithfulness or dishonesty. they part on the best of terms.
The following day is the day when Gareth must meet his ex-wife to apologise for his past behaviour, and also to tell her about his new-found love for Sandra – whom she knows well. This leads to some hilarity on her part, and a feeling that the meeting would have been good value for that snippet of information alone. His ex-wife hugs him as they part – this is witnessed by Sandra’s assistant. Could this innocent gesture lead to a misunderstanding? Don’t ask me – my characters haven’t told me yet.
I’m still new to WordPress. I tend to do the same kind of thing every day and seldom experiment, but this morning I noticed that I must never have published two blogs that I wrote a couple of weeks ago. I’ll publish them just before I publish this post. I have no idea whether they will appear in the correct chronological place
