Sit in the Glow

After the meal I pass around a bottle of whisky and we all get quite mellow. Jonathan and Mary tell Kate more tales of animals they’ve cooked on beaches, Rory and Sam keep talking music and trying to convince each other to play, and Damiond and Kelly talk quietly, in a couple’s conversation. I go and grab some more wood for the fire, come back and add some logs, stoke the flames, sit in the glow and start writing in my notebook.
