At approximately 2:30pm

The Maisy calendar that I’m working on says that September 22nd marks the beginning of August and, sure enough, Autumn began today. At approximately 2:30pm, though by four o’clock and the chilly rain there was very little doubt that the seasn had changed. And only this morning I was thinking that it still seemed very warm, and wondered (as I do every year) whether Winter might decide to give it a miss this year.

The Jam’s quite fun – Mike’s playing bass, so I take the Godin nylon-string and Power Engine along and play guitar, slipping away early. Morley are back, so there are a number of singers there. The band’s sounding better than ever, though, I think.
