I LIKE RAIN
Yesterday evening, in gentle rain, to Bayswater for a supper-party. Some of the people there were involved with KIds Net which is a Catholic prorgramme for children involving a monthly pack of materials covering doctrine, ideas for activities celebrating the feasts of the season, information on saints and Christian traditions...lots of nice things. I liked it.
All the forecasters say we are in for a hot summer, so I am frankly enjoying this rain. Cycled past Buckingham Palace, Royal Standard hanging damply against flagpole. Swished through puddles gleefully. And Hyde Park rather glorious at night, trees uniting overhead to make a dark avenue and cyclists exchanging the briefest of greetings-in-silent-solidarity as we pass each other in silence along the designated paths.
