The bell tinkled over the coffee house door, heralding the arrival of the usual crowd. My eyes searched the faces, some familiar, some new. I could make out Teagan and Holly and waved madly, beckoning to them to come sit with me. Mihran’s musical melodies soothed our ears whilst P.S. Bartlett read out a chapter from her new book, Demons and Pearls, The Razor’s Adventures, to a rapturous applause.
As soon as she finished, Mel entertained us with her A to Z blog of the Krakens! Today is day thirteen and the letter ‘K’. A few more bloggers gave their ‘K’ contributions including Soucerer with his own collection of contributors to the challenge. Each received a wonderful show of support. I thoroughly enjoyed their different ideas to fill a letter in the alphabet and wondered if I could manage a month of blogs every day. With a schedule of blogs I already struggle on occasion to meet, it would be quite the challenge.
We all took a moment to think of Hugh, our wonderful fellow blogger. Our hearts and prayers go out to him at this sad time. Cups were raised and a silent moment taken. It was on that note that most left for the night, out into the mild Monday evening air.
I pulled my rucksack over my shoulders and strolled across the park, listening to the owls hooting at the moon. The silence seemed appropriate on the quiet night.
