I am haunted today by a song - it's a "ear worm" as they say - that I just can't seem to get out of my head. It's Arvo Part's setting of the Burns poem " My Heart's in the Highlands". The song was on the film soundtrack of La Grande Bellezza, and it expresses as much a mood as a melody. It seemed fitting that our Netflix pick tonight was The Iron Lady (with the extraordinary Meryl Streep).
Shadows. Shadows and a kind of bittersweet sadness in the air, as we stumble blearily out of a winter that has held on to far too long, startled to find that birds are singing and the sun is shining overhead.
