Friday, August 2
Up early, and into a somewhat warmer morning, I have breakfast and write a final copy of the book proposal review that Routledge asked me to do. At the end of the form they ask me if I have any proposals of my own to suggest, and so I tell them briefly about Vision of Cultural Democracy, the book Sophie and I have talked about putting together, based on material from the podcasts.
I walk back to the main house to get a glass of water and find Sunshine waiting there for me: not to go in but to have the opportunity to roll around in front of me.
Perhaps his cat radar has warned him that he will not see us for a fortnight from tomorrow.
