Golden light over Park Frankendael
Yesterday we had spectacular skies of sun, cloud and hail. Today it is altogether grey and a lot colder and we are expecting snow, the first snow of the winter. It is moving up from the south of the country and it remains to be seen whether the snow will stay around long enough to be photographed.
The snow is falling now (mid-day) and I am waiting for Zorah, our cleaning lady to turn up. Thursday is her day. Three weeks ago, we had the worst winter strom in years, two weeks ago the coldest day of the winter, last Thursday was mild and bright and otday it is snowing... not such a problem for her to get here but maybe a worse problem to return home.
I will be going to a concerrt in Paradiso later, a concert by Adrian Sherwood, of On-U-Sound records fame and producer of the African Head Charge albums. We now have Fred's old record player upstairs as mine was not turning around properly and being a Technics, it is apparently very difficult to repair. Fred, on the other hand had a 'Dual' record player, made in Germany and very reliable. The only problem is that it is a bit too big for the cupboard and I have to find a way to support a shelf above, where we can put the CD's. The CD's are now stacked up next to the cupboard and there are so many of them, so many that it is quite incredible how they all managed to fit in in the first place.
Apart from African Head Charge, we are also listening to many records of Black, best known for 'Wonderful Life' from 1987.
