(I'll live, though. And, in my line of things and in these times, better to have work than not to -music education is probably the very lowest priority in this economic and political climate...)
Day had started beautiful, bright and sunny but has now reverted to previous semi-winter state. One lesson done (maxvon_d in town), three more later on. A couple of hours free in the meantime, had been wondering whether to go to gym/swim or to wander around some part of town I don't often go to, or even just the park. The weather seems to have made the decision for me, but still not sure.
Flash backs of rainy days like this when I was a kid, in my dad's car, mostly waiting while he went on mysterious errands, sometimes coming back with Italian sugar glazed almonds or something like that, but most of the time me just sitting there in the car, watching the rain streaming down the windscreen and the passing cars raising puddles into the air with a big splash... sometimes a sun beam breaking through and making the water drops and puddles sparkle...

So we have a new Prime Minister. Hm, I don't like him, I do not like what he stands for and what he intends to do but, on the other hand, the other lot had clearly exhausted themselves. Power seems to do something very noxious to people. I'm sure many of them start with good intentions, maybe they still believe they are only doing whatever's necessary for the greater good by the end of it. But they seem to become encased in their different little world, surrounded as they are by sycophantic cliques that will tell them what they think they want to hear.
I actually like Brown. Ok, shoot me now if you will. I do like him and believe he's an honest man. He just should never have been the Prime Minister.
On a different sphere of things, my life seems to be changing enormously. A ghost from the past seems to be becoming the possible shape of the future for me. We'll see. Sorry to be cryptic on that one. It's all good, thus far.
Ok, more coffee and I'm out of here. I'm late already....
