For my book, the publishers wanted a picture of ‘an English world’, so I sat in an armchair in the corner of our lounge, and we sent them the photo. It was all casually done.
The next thing we know, they’ve turned it into an illustration—very tasteful and artistic. But you can see that it’s me.
My real ‘language world’, though, is not so much what I have around me. It’s more the habits that I’ve set up: this habit of 100-word writing, listening while I walk, adding to my foreign book collection, developing my un-learning/de-schooling course et cetera.
