Life has been rather serious. Doing lots of things that require focus. Proof-reading, editing, planning, teaching preparation, organising. It's time to play.

There, that's better. Step inside and note, from the corner of your eye, all the dusting, cleaning and clearing that is crying out to be done.
Ignore them. Listen to the bird song.
You have arrived.
