10:00 in the evening - work done. The world is still. Fire blazing. The rocking chair swings back and forth to the gentle rhythm of my foot. Vintage Corelle tea cup filled with that most comforting and splendid of beverages, hot chocolate.
But waiting, just on the other side of that page, lies a world of intrigue, suspense, valor and honor. Disguises, monarchs, a mysterious lute-playing damsel, and of course a hero in the bonnie Highland laddie.
Thank you for another wonderful evening, Sir Walter Scott!
