WIP ♥lovefolly♥

lovefolly WIP

Customs rang yesterday morning, which was very nice of them. They’d spoken to Kris the night before. He’s 450 miles from Darwin, sort of backtracking because the poor winds sent him down on level with the Kimberleys. I’m hoping it’ll take him between 5 and 7 days to get here, as the monsoon trough still hasn’t established itself properly. The Customs officer said, “He said to tell you he’s happy.” Not safe. Not well. Happy. I had to chuckle at the message Kris sent through him.

A small painting came after that phone call. What can I say? That I am more affected by my emotions than I would like to admit? “Love is the wisdom of the fool, and the folly of the wise.” (Samuel Johnson)

  1. you guys, it makes me smile thinking you both still have the hots for each other. can’t imagine the kind of sweet yearning a seafaring pirate might invoke but the beauty of your work tells all.

    • I don’t know why people are delighted or surprised that my relationship with my best friend is still going strong. What’s 15 years to a friendship? Nothing.
      LOL Kat, you needn’t imagine him as a seafaring pirate…that is, after all, a romantic (and inaccurate) image…he doesn’t actually do anything piratical (and I don’t mean the Hollywood image of pirates, which is wholly contemptible) and when I look at him, I don’t think “Oh yeah, seafaring pirate!” What people really are has nothing to do with what they’ve done, what they do, what they look like. He would probably be the same person even if he did something else all his life, like, I dunno, de-sex chickens. And he’d probably still be my best friend. :D
