I am in Cotuit, Ma. I have been swimming in the sea. It is a most magnificent day. Margot is off to a phone meeting. I am in the middle of cleaning up the first draft of “Beyond Expectation,” the next novel. It is hard work. I do not feel like working, but I when I swim, as I swim, I work. I know that is fact, because when I return from the sea, ideas present themselves. Thank goodness for that. “Beyond Expectation” is set on Cape Cod, set in the village where I swim every morning, set in another town, in a house overlooking the sea at my favorite beach; Dowses Beach… where I swim every afternoon. In between swims I write. I cogitate, I agonize, I edit.
