I’ve survived my birthday celebration and am packing to go for a few days to Padua. The days have been pretty gloomy here in Trentino, and though we do want to be correct and welcome the cold winter with open arms, I admit is was wonderful to feel the warm sun shine down on us yesterday. Talking to friends the other night we calculated that we had approximately 8 days of actual winter weather in our valley. Of course it has been known to snow in March (in May as well as far as that goes) but that’s not a pleasant idea. The air here is extremely dry and the skies sometimes have the oddest colours. Which brings me to today’s theme:
There is a particular feel in the air when a storm is about to blow. Maybe the colour of the sky is odd, maybe it’s too silent – sometimes it’s just something indefinable – a heavy brooding in the air. Then the wind might pick up a little and the sky get darker:
no bird song this morning
