On the radio: Cello Suite by Bach, Alisa Weilerstein R3.
Black Dyke Band playing Rusalka – Song to the Moon. Fabulous.
My painting shed. Just started a new series, The Silk Road. One finished called: The Silk Road: Persian Iris. I am really enjoying myself despite everything as it the first time I have had the time and space to simply get on with work without worrying about getting a part-time job/doing a part-time job and can just concentrate. It makes all the difference.
The weather continues cold and dreary so have ordered more firewood from good old Conor as I especially do not want to run out at this time. The fire is very comforting.
Have started a one-day fast God help me.
Had SingalongaLudwig in the shed to the Choral Fatasie. I felt a bit sorry for my neighbours, the cows, who probably thought it was the dying screams of some strange wild animal. Came in to find a Beethoven sonata just about to start on R3. Synchronicity.
