It's a wrap!
In subzero temperatures - well it felt pretty nippy despite struggling sunshine - Hazel & I spent this morning perched on planks, prowling alleys of terracotta tiles, leaning beside erotic statues, quaffing pseudo Pinot Grigiot at a wrought iron patio table set, & sitting in a porcelain bath, all in the name of poetry while Howard filmed us for the "Live & Lippy" DVD.
The track's called "Weird" so Frome Reclamation yard seemed an ideal location. Can't wait to see the final edit.

Another of my more tenuous links with writing: after a busy weekend, I spent Sunday walking with Hazel from Lyme Regis to Seaton.
This is French Lieutenant's Woman land, of course, that 'epic love story of two people of insight and imagination seeking escape from the cant and tyranny of their age, and also a brilliantly sustained allegory of the decline of the twentieth-century passion for freedom.'
Furthermore, Jane Austen's Persuasion is currently being filmed at Lyme: 'a story about rediscovering love when it might be too late, and the fragility of happiness, also an energetic narrative of snobbery and almost farcical missed opportunities.'
So there you are, a popourri of human emotions and social history, and a fantastic walk too.
