The knowledge that rain is due tomorrow made me appreciate this wonderful day much more than if unaware of the impending gloom approaching. It was unprecedented in its beauty. The balance of solitude and good company was perfect. The sea was calm, as was the wind, after a cold start and a lost hat the weather turned almost balmy, the soundtrack was that of courting birds gearing up for the spring. A peacock butterfly caused gasps and a bee found its way to the peach flowers in the greenhouse. My only worry is that in the natural order of things I am due a really bad day very soon.
