What a beautiful day today! Is this the first
sign of spring at last? So different from yesterday which I wrote about below!
After swimming and Tai Chi this morning
and working a bit on a couple of pieces …adding the last few words to
my choral piece ‘Earth‘… I decided to face the dull day and brave a walk in
the cold! Walking by the river just now, lost in my thoughts I suddenly noticed
that the sun had appeared! I caught myself smiling as I saw the delicate

mud was transformed into delightful gold textures with an unworldly air of
My thoughts then went to my forthcoming album, Found in the Sunlight, along
with a new insight into the significance of the title and its meaning in
our lives… there is sunlight here to be found but we often have to have faith
and trust that it will shine into our lives when we need it!
