Greetings - send Cathy wintery song suggestions
The picture below was taken earlier in the week close to where I live. It's just like a Christmas card - the perfect winter scene, and despite the fact that winter provides us with the most amazing photo opportunities, it also throws obstacles in our way - making travel and communication a real challenge.
Maybe we've all learned something from last year's Big Freeze, because this week as I struggled through the snowy streets of the capital, in my very sturdy red wellies, I got a sense that everyone had a shared feeling of "all being in the same boat" - a knowing smile, a shrug of the shoulders as everyone went about their varied tasks, of clearing the snow from the pavements, dodging the messy sludge and teetering with indecision over where the pavement ended and the road began. That's why my wellies won't be far from my side.
Out in the country, fields of undisturbed snow glistened in the watery sun - and not a breath of wind. Winter is unquestionably the mightiest of the seasons, and possibly the prettiest. What songs remind you of Winter - we played one in todays show that first the bill - Wintersong - by Sarah McLachlan, but there are scores more. Not Christmas - the season of winter. Send me your favourites and your suggestions and we'll find room for them on the show
