    In the carpenter's shop eating oysters with the walrus.
    A difficult subject. I found it most useful to learn how to inhabit a character. Took a while to figure out how to do that. It is easy to get in, but sometimes hard to get out. My personal (i.e. hired) editor once wrote "Mike, you are in love with her. IN LOVE. Knock it off. YOU are not her hero. Neither is Serge. She is. She must get up from the mat* on her own."

    * Figuratively speaking.

    "The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things."
