  1. I'm on chapter 5. If you keep this as good as it has been so far I fear I will have no afternoons to water my plants left until I'm done reading!! Hahaha. Poor plants.

    1. Oh no, please don't neglect your plants because of my story. I don't want that bad karma falling on me :)

      My story will be here waiting for you, but your plants might suffer from your absence!

      I am glad you are back and enjoying what you read. Until January 2015 I hope to revise the entirety of chapters published so far, joining 'the last canvas' and 'Laurent under the sun' into this blog here, and then we will have the new episodes.

      Thank you for commenting.

  2. Hello Andante Zen!
    I have a question. The chapter I read on your other blog, Laurent Under the Sun, was chapter 15, conclusion. Am I correct in understanding that this chapter is the most recent one you have written, not counting the revised ones? :)

    1. Hello, dear.

      You are right. That's where I'll pick the plot from, once I finish revising the whole story, and splitting the chapters into smaller episodes. They had become too long, with too many pictures, and I am not able to update the story in that pace any longer. I have also started revising the text on my smartphone, and thus the eps were made conveniently shorter for these devices, too. I think some of my readers will approve.

      Thank you for coming thus far with the novel, and for having always commented.
