I slept with the windows open last night, listening to the rain. For the first time in weeks the owls were quiet, the coyotes were quiet, the raccoons were quiet. Autumn arrived on little cat feet. It was peaceful.
It would have been more peaceful if I’d been able to sleep, but I couldn’t. Hild is pouring through my head at the moment, and at one o’clock in the morning I gave up, got up, and wrote down about 500 words worth of notes. Things are getting exciting: marriages, pregnancies, treachery, assassination attempts, family betrayals. At last–yay!–I can (literally) get the knives out.
So my presence here might be a little erratic for the next few days. I’ll be posting, and I’ll be reading comments, but I’ll be returning comments with reduced frequency. Meanwhile here’s a pic of moody Bebbanburh (okay, actually a pic of Bamburgh, made to look, y’know, medieval–I forget where I found it; it’s been on my hard drive for ages; I’ve been trying to figure out for ages where it’s from, who should get the credit; if you recognise it, please let me know). And do, please, talk amongst yourselves…

Is this what you are looking for?>>>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bamburgh_Castle
I love when my characters keep me awake! Have fun with it! (Knives, oh yeah…)
linda, I’m trying to find the picture I used in my blog post, so I can credit the artist. I don’t even know if it’s a photo messed with to look like a watercolour, or if it’s a watercolour.>>ssas, yep, having fun, blood all over the page…
LOL My brain cells are not firing. Big surprise there. I would have sworn that the photos were the same. I am thinking I sent you the wrong link! The clouds are what I looked at for a match and the clouds in the link I sent you, as well as the beach, LOL, are no where near a match! Sigh… I need dark chocolate.
linda, I hear you the need for chocolate…
Lovely picture…but I am very excited about news of the Hild progress.
caite, thanks. Hild is just growing and growing…
This is the closest I’ve found: http://www.chrismouncey.co.uk/seascapes.htm>>It’s not exactly the watercolour here, but maybe you’ll also like it.
karina, they’re a bit blue for my taste, kind of chalky. What I like about the one here is the brooding quality.
Yes. I thought you’d prefer the color scheme in yours. I wish Google wasn’t such a nanny about image searches these days.
I know. They probably never read Spiderman–with great power comes great responsibility–tuh.
