My friend Erin invited me to guest post on her blog. She has lots of interesting topics and/or blog posts coming. Typical topics: Bob Ross, Sherlock, music, movies – just to name a few. If you remember my short story ‘The Hawk at the Harbour’, you may also remember the beautiful photos. Erin’s photos inspired me to write this story.

    • Thank you very much, Erin. 🙂
      I’ve watched it at least eight times so far. I even bought the DVD (only available in the US). The TV version shown in Europe is a little shorter.
