Yesterday evening, fresh for getting my ticket money refunded, I raced home to give the porch the new paint I had promised to give it. Five minutes before I finished the rains came.
This morning I go outside and look to see if the lat night’s rain spoiled the paintwork. It did not. The photograph I take has almost no colour: probably due to the fact that I painted the wood white, and the brickwork remains very light gray.
The rest of the day will pass in bouts of teaching, writing, reading and listening. If anyone asks you if they should think of Matt Fraction’s recent Jimmy Olsen series as a classic, just say yes.
