Although the miracle of the Twelve by Twelve group is that we have gelled together as a family, it is perhaps inevitable that within the larger group some more closer connections will be forged based on geography or personality. I have been priveledged to spend more time with Diane Hock than any of the others so far, wth two visits to California and a recent three week period hosting Diane and her family in the UK. We have found that we have much in common, not least a love of taking unrealsitically large baskets of books and journals ( and ipads and kindles and pencil boxes) to coffee shops and just hanging out enjoying tea and solitude.
I took it as one of the greatest compliments possilble when, after one such shared session Diane said to me "Being with you is as good as being alone."
Although we like to be in the same space when we are both engrossed in or own thoughts we found that we also enjoyed sharing a pot of tea (preferably with cream scones) and discussing creative matters. It was in my local cafe Bocboc, whilst lamenting the fact that we would soon be separated by the Atlantic that we came up with the idea of continuing the conversation by blog and letting you all eavesdrop from a neighbourng table
So we invite you to come on over and join us at www.teaandtalkfortwo.blogspot.com where we plan to post about once a week each on whatever topics pertaining to creativity and the creative process are on our minds. The idea is that the blog will be a dialogue between us. Comments very welcome.
