We came out of Sainsbury's on Saturday evening, and the sun was setting spectacularly. On the way out I could hear this tune (I hoped to put a link here-you would know it if I hummed it!) and thought I was going mad, until I saw a man playing it on a saxophone. Another man was taking a photo and the sax man said "no photos"-but the photo man just wanted the sunset and the sax man was in front of it! He would have made a great silhouette.
I found this quote in 'The Artist's Way' tonight, which I really liked as a compromise on the way to your dreams. I don't know if you know the book-it is a kind of programme to follow to regain your creativity, and works well for many I think. It has some interesting ideas but I am afraid it does not suit me, as, a) I am too lazy to do morning pages, and b) cannot contemplate the idea of having a week which is free of books, tv, internet, magazines-what if that is the week I died? If you do not know it then I apologise for waffling on inexplicably.
"Choose one festive aspect from your ideal day. Allow yourself to live it. You may not be able to move to Rome yet, but even in a still grungy apartment, you can enjoy a home made cappuccino and a croissant"
I can still look at shells, even if not at the beach! (I am easily pleased)
On the news tonight I found out that there is a windmill in Brixton! Who would have thought it? I intend to seek it out and photograph it at some point in the future-there is an interesting pub nearby-hand painted sign, has music on, may be worth a try.
Here is a great site called windmill world with lots of information. I had forgotten but there is a windmill in Plumstead near where I work-it is a pub and is quite scary!
Looking for the tune, which I still have not found, led me to these videos which are great-I recognised every single tune but could not name one. Oh dear. They would be great for a classical music quiz if the need arose!
