When will you come out?Jochem 5:29 pm, Oct 14th 2011
The alarm wakes me early. The room is very dark, no clues about the sort of day ahead. I open the curtains to a clear sky. A sky with beautiful shimmering potential.
This is as good as it gets when the weather is on the turn. But it got better over breakfast.
Andy had a fry-up, including that Moto staple, the Hash Brown. Steph, like the unseasonal sunshine, had a hot-cross-bun. Rhys had crumpets again and I had posh porridge from Ireland.
Jane had calcium and vitamin D3 (amongst other things).
I checked the Opera House timetable between mouthfuls of Flavahan’s. That’s when it happened. The rehearsal was only scheduled for 11:30. I had a morning off, exclamation mark.
I made a snap decision: grabbed my kit, jumped unwashed into some clothes and headed for a swim at the Oasis. They’ve got two pools. One indoor, one outdoor. Side by side. Both empty.
I swam 30 lengths. Outside in the glorious October sunshine. Life is beautiful.
It made me wonder: why hadn’t everyone come out?
