a warming Heavenly City

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday all featured lots of work to do and good weather. Monday I did get a short walk in at Bradfield Park in Garland at lunch.

I am 110 pages in to Gavin Newman's "Ring of Bright Water." It's a good read so far. Sometimes the descriptions are lyrical rather than less lyrical, resulting in a somewhat slower reading pace for me. Part of me says there should be a pithy poem by Stevie Smith to explain all this,but all the ones I know are mostly waving and drowning.
