After the rain – Seillans, France, October 2004
This is the time of year when I start feeling a creeping fear – fear of the long, nights, fear of my freezing toes, fear of broken heating systems, fear of my frostbitten nose. I wake up in the morning to greyness. I go out at lunchtime into greyness. I come home in greyness, segueing into darkness. And more often that not, there is a drizzle to accompany it. But some mornings (like this morning), the rain of the previous night clears and I awake to leaves scattered with diamonds in the watery sunlight. Joy returns!
