Day 5 of #savouringjanuary2017 with @gabrielletreanor *Gentle *
I've had quite a gentle day today. Still on 'holiday' from work.
I started with Morning Pages, and a new exercise I've invented for myself, 'Writing Pages'. A single page of fiction from a prompt. The prompt is derived from any book lying around. Use the date eg 5 as the page number and take the first line. Then write whatever comes to mind that follows on from that line. It was fun, so I will definitely do more of that. I’m really enjoying writing.
Then, several cups of tea and a piece of Christmas cake in front of the fire, when a friend came to visit. A wonderfully, inspirational chat.
Following a short dog walk, I went for a gentle bike ride and took this picture, Crinan (home) is to the left, Duntrune Castle to the right, with Jura straight ahead. Given the amount of weather that can bellow it's way across this stretch, it was a gentle day, cold but quite still. Home then to sit in front of the fire, websites to read, DreamPlanDo book to look at, and an episode of Father Brown to watch. A gentle murder!
