Life begins at 5.34 a.m.

Have you ever been able to recapture a dream? Once I managed to get back into the same world with the same characters the following night. Now, that’s cool.

I woke up from a lovely dream today and tried to go back to sleep to recapture it, but I failed. So I started surfing and found some wonderful drawings that the cartoonist Ronald Searle did for his wife when she was diagnosed with cancer. I tweeted a link to them, and Isaac in California saw I was awake and we had the most wonderful, easy messaging chat, as if he was sitting here next to me…. about work, and about Lux at pre-school (she started this term and loves it), And he sent me these pictures:

off to school 1

off to school 2

What a perfect way to wake up. Isn’t t’internet champion?

Recapture a dream.. Tried, but no never succeeded.
Echoes of Le Grand Meaulnes.

But your grand-daughter, caught up in her moment.
First time I thought I caught a resemblance to you.

It's a joy to think Lux might look like me!

Sue - thank you so much for the link to the Ronald Searle drawings.

Earlier, you asked for books which have had an effect - this one is right up there. I couldn't resist - my copy arrived today - completely enchanting.

Oh anonymous, I am so pleased you like the Ronald Searle. I found the link on Twitter. And for all you Twitter sceptics, I also found the place to see the starling murmuration on twitter - aptly.
