After a great deal more tinkering, I think I will rest on my laurels with Immy and the music and the story and the juggling of the illustrations. I hope said bay tree doesn’t have any sticky-out bits which will dig into me and make me get off the leaves-well-enough-alone again!


  Here is the second-last page of the final story, and I have put the short theme which forms the main part of it on my sidebar player. This music I have named ‘Playground’, and the reference to ‘Boys and Girls Come Out to Play’ which may be picked up is quite deliberate. Of course, in another version which plays with the actual page the music has some people running away and diving into bushes, and things like that, but it still follows the theme faithfully.

  Now, pretty please, can I do some blogging?

    Now you have to start publishing online, words and music together. Something that was much harder before people had the devices to access both together.

    Nice Col. Just a pity the side bar music player not opening on my computer, would have loved to hear your music.
