The eye of the storm

Well not quite but the view from this office is rather like a 1930s film set today with bucketfuls of rain being hurled horizontally across the windows, the midday sky dark and the wind howling. There was a glorious rainbow over Winchester yesterday and in the evening, in a moment of clear sky, I saw the moon's crescent gleaming across my garden like a crooked smile.

It was a cold, blustery old day today wasn't it? You put it very poetically, I thought!

Calm as calm can be out there where I am. Frighteningly so ...

Spent a large chunk of Monday on trains back to Eastleigh from Liverpool - been singing Crucifixion in the Cath up there this w/end - and it was one of the worst journies I can recall. Train from Bham NS being buffeted from side to side and crawling along. I did feel if I had to take my life in my hands like that, I was on the RIGHT train - it was full of nuns going to a conference in Bmouth! When it was announced that the train would go no further than Southampton, they all looked at eachother, chuckled a bit and said, 'Goodness! This will be fun then won't it?' I wished I'd shared their laid back-ness! I got to Soton Airport station, walked across to the airport to get a cab home and several businessmen were coming through the door from a flight. The chap meeting them asked if the flight had been a bit bumpy, and the poor man being collected looked up, white as a sheet, and said it was the hardest landing he'd ever known! I felt so sorry for him.

Best. Liz
