I enjoyed four long walks today—sleep evaded me again last night, so I got up and out early to get some fresh air. There was a hint of spring around today; snowdrops and daffodils are beginning to peek through, and I snapped a photo of some outside Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. I love this time of year. It fills me with a feeling of optimism and new life, which reflected in the applications I had to complete earlier this evening. I feel energised, ready to breathe new life into my work—I feel ready to create.
I should have been off to a campaign meeting in Edinburgh tonight, but my commitments in the afternoon overran leaving no time to travel. Instead, I spent an impromptu night with my lovely friend Daniel; good food, good wine and good company was just what I needed after such a tiring and restless few days. I'm heading home to bed now and hope that after trekking over 9 miles today I'll finally get a full night's rest ahead of another productive day tomorrow.
