Figure VII

Our story begins some time around seven on a wet Thursday morning in June. Rain beats out a steady pulse upon the windowpanes. Tealeaves infuse in the rich darkness of the pot. Nancy lays out breakfast thing in the dining room as she used to for her husband and now does for her guests, who one by one descend the staircase and enter the room.

    I’m hooked. I love tea, rain, England, and your drawings. Plus, it’s an interesting narrative voice. Best, BL
