    They are, indeed, so happy together. At the very least, it will be easier to take your book around with you, although, I’m not sure that it will work out with you or stay on your bike without damaging its pages.

    The happy visuals—he’s enjoying the artistic life as a musician with his instrument as companion—are in sharp contrast to to what I’m like in “writer mode.”

    No, not nearly so pretty, the Me-and-My-Manuscript video. You’d see me, in ratty jeans with dead-on-the-vine hairstyle, hunched over the laptop. Squinting, sighing, pausing to scribble in a notebook, then taking another handful of taco chips…and typing another sentence.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I’d rather ride the yellow bike with the cello!

      I’ll … think about it. Actually, it might be fun. Or it might scare even my loyalest fans away!

      What I want to see, Gayle, is you riding the bike with your … piano! πŸ™‚

        I’m trying to remember how many years it’s been since I rode a bicycle. Hmmm… Not sure I can count that high. I played the flute for 7 years when I was in school. Now, that might work. Or the handbells. I could definitely attach the handbells to the handlebars.

    I’m glad he’s having a good time with his “friend.” There are days I feel like I’m struggling with an enormous backpack that has all the characters of Persuasion sprouting out of it. I wish I had a tandem bike!

      Oh, I agree about the backpack thing. The trouble with the tandem bike idea is that imaginary friends don’t pedal!!

      Neither does that cello. The curse of the artistic life. We must bear the burden of momentum.

      On the other hand, if we persevere and publish, the royalty income will help with bills. So that’s a form of “pedaling,” isn’t it?

      Or should that be written “peddling?” Ha.

    OMG! I am sooo stealing this video, Laura! This is exactly the love affair that my husband and son have with their instruments. I’ve made peace with it by becoming cello-shaped, and learning there are times when it’s okay to be second fiddle.

    Too funny, Lucy! I’m struggling to lose my grand piano shape. Weight Watchers again, tomorrow! I finally finished the last chapter of Legacy today, though I have quite a bit of rewriting to do. I feel like the books are the anvil I’ve carried around for a year!
