a whiff of spring

Yesterday I was at school from 9 am until 10 pm. It was a long day with a lot of Joanna Shows. I even had to squeeze in an extra matinee session in the afternoon. By the end of the day I understood exactly how Natalie Portman's character felt in Black Swan - all that pirouetting around the classroom, giving the illusion of lightness, is exhausting.! After class Ulla and I walked back home and she remarked on how there was a whiff of spring in the air which I found rather astute for a shopping trolley.
Once homeI left Ulla to unpack and went out for a walk. I couldn't be inside. It must have been around eleven o'clock but it was a bright night so I went down by the river to watch the ducks. Ulla was right. There was definitely a spring whiff. I don't know if I really feel ready for the change yet but Mother Nature beats to no one's drum but her own so I guess I will just have to accept it. As I strolled alongside the water I felt very lucky to live in a town where I can go walking on my own in the evening.


* Right now I am listening to the music of an Algerian singer called Souad Massi. Here is a link to one of her songs called Ghir Enta.

** I am also thinking about my Braccialini handbag. I bet it is incredibly bored sitting in a posh shop right now and wishes it could be out swinging on my very un-boring arm instead.
