This morning the sound of a flute in Grosvenor Precinct opposite Waterstone's. What strikes me as utterly beautiful is not the manner in which it is played by a girl in a red jacket and a white scarf (probably a competent performance by a music student) but the way the sound enters the airwaves without the help of an amplifier other than the breath of the musician.
Yesterday moved by a moment of irritation with the banner photograph of last summer's morning glory I changed the layout of this blog. Gone is the repetitious banner. We begin from now on with a different illustration every day. The banner and the regular daily picture have in fact merged. I also see that with the new format I can tweet the post and Facebook it too. I am not quite sure what that means but will soon find out.
