Winter has come to grace us one last time, leaving its teary soft farewell behind. It's quiet and calm before what's to be, no doubt, another stormy (and dry) work week. But enough with the weather metaphors.
Rain isn't the only beautiful and calming presence to have visited me this afternoon. The other was a young Californian singer-songwriter called Cameron Lewis. Discovered quite by chance, he's singing in my ears as I watch the drops roll down on the window, sneaking another bite of strawberry salad. It's the picture of solace, or rather the sound of it.
