Friday 18 April


Aye, it's Good Friday, and not a bad day weatherwise. Breezy this morning but quite bright with some intermittent sunshine and about 11C / 52F. It is customary in some parts of the world to attend a performance of JS Bach's St Matthew's Passion today, and it is one of the few pieces of classical music where the audience does NOT applaud at the end. You file out in silence. The Passion ends with the death of Christ being mourned with the words: "In tears we are sitting here". Never a dry eye in the house...  

One of those glary days. Sun is not openly out in the sky, but the thin high- and mid-level cloud makes the light very bright indeed. It doesn't always agree with me, unfortunately. Where's me paracetamol?
