an update

monday morning sees me return here, my first post since winter. the cusp of summer is about me now, meadows in breezy bloom, and long mild evenings nearly merging with early dawn. a lot of time spent alone, baking and reading, evening walks round the park, along the river, with the odd attempt at golf. for i've moved from the country barn to a city flat of grandeur georgian proportions; a fortunate find with maggie whilst she was here in the spring. it's large shuttered windows are perfect for standing by, mug of tea in hand, watching the infrequent rain fall down on passers-by below. the park just outside, and the river beyond, means i am still clinging to a sense of countryside here. yet it feels incomplete without maggie here; spring was a special time, where time offered the luxury for ordinary companionship. people take for granted the comfort of waking up and coming home to someone you love every day.

in such time alone, music is seemingly filling the silence in the place. the high ceilings offer an echoing reverb when i play, or floats songs from one side of the flat to the other when the stereo is on. these past few evenings i've been enjoying these videos shot by vincent moon, of bands playing very unique versions of their songs. they feel intimately cinematic, or carefree and rambunctious:

bon iver:






the shins:






the national:




alan sparhawk (of low):



they are all just ridiculously good.

otherwise, i've had a lazy weekend, trading banana muffins and home-made lemonade for some earl grey tea leaves and coffee beans, sorting out some shipping of a grinder out of germany that i intend to sell on once it arrives to me, watching Wimbledon and eating pasta with my feet up.
