We interrupt this month of Mrs. Dalloway already in progress with a beach sighting of Victorine, the novel!
Barry and I decided to escape to the dunes this past weekend while the weather was still nice. I brought a copy of Victorine along for a fun photo op.
After all, she had been there before, albeit in manuscript form as I worked on her. Not to mention the tweaking I did of her on the beach in El Greco’s birthplace in Greece. So she’s no stranger to sand and sun. No brain child of mine would despise the outdoors.
While planning photos of her in the sand Sunday, I bewailed not having a cute puppy to pose with my book. “Well, sea gulls would be more fitting anyway, wouldn’t they?” I asked Barry.
A. There were sea gulls on the beach. B. My hubby loves to wrangle them using goodies! Within minutes, my book had a new fan club. I’m afraid they were compensated for their endorsement, but that doesn’t make the photos any less pleasing to me!
I’d like to think Victorine (in any form) would have enjoyed the attention.
