The story continues.
Lavinia is still in Wales with her inlaws.
Gil had met a fellow artist while in Cuba who had invited him to go back to Switzerland with him to go skiing.
Gil was a little apprehensive as he had never been skiing before but agreed that it sounded fun, it would be good to see snow after all this sun, sea and sand.
Gil had been on the beginners slope just half an hour when he when he tripped over his ski and rolled over and over, when he finally came to a halt he was quite shocked and relieved to find he had not broken every bone in is body but just the first finger on his right hand, he was relieved ‘It could have been worse’ he told his friend, ‘ It could have been my left hand’. Then he would have found it difficult to work.
A few days later he left his friend and went on a short break to Muralto, he had wanted to go and see the place where Paul Klee had lived and died just 9 years before.
He would while away his days painting and thinking about a certain lady he was feeling very fond of, wishing that one day soon they would meet!
One the back he wrote.
My Dear Lavinia,
I am in Muralto Switzerland, (Paul Klee used to live here). When I was in Cuba I met a fellow painter friend who invited me to go skiing in his home town in Switzerland. Unfortunately I am no skier! First time on the slope I fell and broke my finger! So I have come here (not so dangerous) luckily I can still paint (left handed)!
This week I am sending you roses! Klee style.
Hope you are well and enjoying the rest in Wales!
Your Gil XX
P.S. Anxiously waiting for your letters! X
