Moved into my new apartment yesterday and everything was completed by late afternoon today. The deed is now done and I can relax the weekend before flying off to Tanzania. Wonderful neighbours made the task painless. There is a marvellous sense of goodwill overall in Dublin.  A heavy autumn’s day today and it’s still only July 31st. Some rain, cold,winter coats, strong winds, dark overcast sky.  Melancholic but highly atmospheric too. The songs of the gulls prevail.
