Rust on Every Rivet

I haven't done enough work this afternoon...

There is a wintry sunlight today, which I've accompanied with the lovely record that came in the morning: Hyperboreans.

The upper fretwork of the crane which currently towers over my house is thronged with getting on for a thousand Starlings. As with the noise of the building work (on London's ugliest and most irritating apartment block) the bubbling chatter is reflected back into my street by the houses across the way.

Thank you for the Hyperboreans link. I love to start the day with something beautiful. The Starlings on the crane story sounds like the beginnings of a lovely picture book.

My favorite thing about the record is the Ali Roberts connection. Look up his other records if you don't know them...
