Flashback

In the pre-dawn twilight I can just about make out the black shapes of trees and ghostly grey mist coiled around their branches. Yesterday was mild and rainy. Today probably ditto.

Today I'm all alone in Carmine Superiore. The friends we have been entertaining since Friday night just tapped on the window, waved goodbye and disappeared down the slippery slope towards home. 

I'm also bereft of company because today is the start of the annual ski-fest, organised by Sci Club Cannobio and once again subsidised by the heads-screwed-on-right chappies at the Comune di Cannobio. And this year there are not one but two snow-bunnies in the family.

And if last year is anything to go by, lots of high-speed fun will be had by all...(click the link - it's a fun post!)

Don't you go and watch? I guess a day of lovely silence is fairly tempting!

Sometimes I do, but today tax accounts beckon...

I know sometimes I really relish a day of solitude! I hope you enjoy your time...
The first sentence of this post is just exquisite writing by the way!

Have a wonderful week!

Enjoy the solitude. You certainly have such a beautiful place to do it at.

I've just read on another blog somebody calling this solitude a "Garboesque" moment - very fitting I thought and I hope to have one myself...soon...I hope... Wishing you a good week ahead and hope you enjoy your quiet time. Love from London xo

I think Garboesque is solitude with attitude - mine's just solitude pure and simple and wonderful! :-)
