It’s raining outside as I write this, that sort of light angular rain that pours from dark clouds, light sky in the distance. It soaks you through, but it is the best sort of rain, it smells like spring.
I went shopping Friday for something important – I returned with books. Spoiler alert, the books weren’t the something important. Brighton’s Oxfam book shop distracted me from my task, but more on that haul later.
