A Mediterranean sun beat down hard all day with scarcely a breath of wind to cool me or blow away the dust. This is not a complaint you understand, I had a brilliant day. I think I have settled the number of segments question about right and the forms are beginning to take shape. As with the last piece I must get the amount of material connecting the forms right. I want to reduce the amount connecting one to another to a minimum in order to give the feeling of individual elements, but not remove so much material that it breaks. The good weather is set to remain and I shall try and take full advantage. A baby swallow fell out of a nest and landed on the car. We put it back and hope it survived the adventure.
