It was good, today.
I walked to the seaside in a spring coat and warm-weather brogues.
I listened to the birds sing---oh, how they sung!---and saw the floating movement of their velveteen wings.
I watched the tide ebb with like-minded friends, knowing that this year is over---apart from a few scribbled exam papers and an essay or two.
It was good---it was relaxing. But most of all? Most of all it was needed---so absolutely needed.
