No eclipse to be seen from my classroom this morning due to low cloud. Students come in saying yeah they'd seen it via BBC online. Whatever.
The Marcin Wasilewski CD (Spark of Life) arrives - finally. I'm listening to it right now. Yesterday it was the Carlos Kleiber Tristan. & I am slowly working my way into the Jan Swafford biography of Beethoven. Plenty to keep me going.
So let's get this right ... a tank is commandeered to drive through London & deliver a petition signed by near to one million people asking to have an overpaid bigot reinstated. Meanwhile ...
Wales v Italy tomorrow ... might they just pull it off? Could France suddenly find the inspiration to beat England? & a dejected Ireland crumple before a Scotland desperate for at least one win? Questions, questions ...
This really is a beautiful CD by the way ... (now track 3) ...
