Ha! I'm not sure of the exact name, but it's something by Satie. Awful.
In the strange situation of quoting myself, but I've just heard a bit of the piece I mean. It's Gnossienne No. 1. And it's bloody horrible.

Unusual to hear the sound of horses' hooves in this neighbourhood. I was at the window just in time to see a very dainty, white, horse-drawn hearse with the driver in full livery.

I am tempted to connect it with the ambulance which lingered a long time on a call in that street a few days back. RIP. :(

Edit: It was over an hour later, when I heard the hooves again. This time, passing on the main road in an entourage of limousines.

At one time, funerals were common in these streets but the demographic has shifted towards younger families.

Second batch of spekulatius (German spice biscuits) are out of the oven as a birthday present to my Sister-in-law - had to do two lots so my nephews would leave her some. Tired today, debating bed or doing some Melting Moments, think I promised some to Dinobot last time.

Gosh I hope that Dingo doesn't come back tonight.

I think it's beautiful and haunting.
Thoughtful, not sad.
I can only think I heard it during something horrible during my childhood (alas, there were a few episodes like that), hence it scaring me on a visceral level.

Packingh.

This move of house is a completely magickal pursuit. I'm as horny as hell himself. Strapping down boxes just does something to me.

Contemplating the replacement of the power supply in one of my BBC computers. I have the new unit to hand, just need to get on with the job.
Not feeling particularly enthusiastic at the moment.

Managed to dredge up some enthusiasm for the repair. Now i can't find the new connectors.

Sinks back into the slough of despond.
