My apologies for the start-and-stop nature of this blog right now. My own health has stabilized (touch wood), but we're going through a health crisis with Tilly, who is very sick and very frail and needs a great deal of care and love. We yet don't know what the future holds for our dear old girl, but we're heading up to a specialist vet/animal hospital on the Devon and Somerset border today. She has a full day of exploratory tests ahead of her, after which we should know more. She's frail and shakey on her feet, but also clear-eyed, present, and very loving. We're hoping for good news, of course, but preparing ourselves for whatever the news may be.
I hope to be back in the office/studio on Monday. Deep thanks to everyone who has been keeping the conversation here going while I've been absent.
The pictures here: Tilly in youth and in her beautiful old age, the two photos taken in the same spot.
