Can't walk in the fields, can't walk along the road.

    Unless he has a spectacularly good excuse for his temper, may he suffer a temporary and non-threatening but nonetheless uncomfortable and embarrassing medical condition, and may his GP be tactless and patronising with very cold hands.
    And writing this, I realise I’ve never offered congratulations; so, more happily, congratulations!

    Thanks! I think he thought it was outrageous for a human to be walking on the road. I wanted him to stop so I could ask him how he expected me to get from A to B. Maybe I should have hired a helicopter or something.
    Anyway I shall try to be more positive in future posts.

    Complicated – I was conflicted between feeling the moment, and then the sadness of your conclusion – and sometimes I let the few idiots in the world drown out everyone else, too.
    But then again, all I really need to say it get yourselves a widebeam and head back to the canals… ;-)

    Unfortunate incident aside, it’s beautifully rendered. Lovely grays and blues.
