Puotilla Beach, 8:45
A sunny day, so I walk down to the sea while listening to David Baddiel talking about what he believes. When he finally stops I switch to the Goldberg Variations: the 1981 recording by Glenn Gould.
I stop and look at the duck pond where the ducks have all gone. The colours remind me that autumn has definitely pushed summer to one side.
I will have a day of meetings, and happily turn to something more physical in the late afternoon. I will spend a couple of hours at the end of the day painting the fence in the front where Timppa replaced some of the timbers.
