I think I can bravely say that Spring is here at last. These evening, during some dolce far niente, listening to Debussy, it suddenly occurred to me that the kids were out playing on the basketball court again. I haven't heard those adolescent cries since last year, and it's a wonderful, urban sound. The combination of Debussy, a small pot of daffodils on the cofffee table, and those sounds from the street made me feel very good indeed. So I thought it time for the blog to lighten up, literally. And it has - what a girly, springy blog it looks!
