Shoulder the sky my lad

Diary 20th January

Cold clear morning. The sunlit landscape looks almost surreal stretched out to infinity beneath this vast sky. Brown Willie is a purple haze on the horizon. Small puddles of water at the edge of the drive have frozen overnight.

Inauguration day today for Donald Trump.

But I must go shopping. Lots to do.


Supermarkets are unusually busy today. Geriatric drivers everywhere, their heads full of deathwatch beetles. Memo to self: clean the gull shit off the passenger side door handle of the car!


Apparently police officers in Bristol have tasered their own race relations adviser. They mistook him for a suspect, or so it’s been suggested(?). When approached by officers he declined to give his name, so they fired a taser into his face!

Trigger happy or what?
