At the moment it is not raining right here. All is wet, the air is fresh, nippy enough for me to roll myself in the old rug I use through winter, a very useful blanket. The Northern horizon is wiped out, there should be hills, but all I see is a wall of white mist – is it possible to speak of a “streak of rain” ?
I have some eggs & vegetables left, so later some kind of omelette will be prepared – yes, prepared. Because now I own not only a hot plate (a gift I am very thankful for !), but also a nice cooking pot. I am tempted to call it a Kasserolle (Ger. only). I have to learn how this induction plate works – it is fast ! – & how it reacts. But I am sure that I’ll get my head around this, simply because I want to.
I made a to-do-list for tomorrow, much to my chagrin I have forgotten a few things lately. I hate it when I finally sit down with that content feeling of “All is done”, and apruptly some things jump at me ferociously, yelling “You forgot me ! I am still here, you see ?! Shame on you ! Shame !” Astounding that a phone call or an envelope can have such a life of their own. Energetic beasts.
A total different kind of energy developed the gentlemen Jim HALL (1930-2013) (Ger., Eng.) and Paul DESMOND (sax) (1924-1977) (Ger., Eng.) in company with Gene CHERICO (1935-1994) (Ger., Eng.) on bass & Connie KAY (1927-1994) (Ger., Eng.) on drums. In 1964 they played HALL’s All Across the City in the most elegant way.
I hope you enjoy the music. May the coming week be relaxing and peaceful.
