Early this morning I heard my first blackbird of the year! I remember years ago calling them “wonky birds” because of their all-over-the-place song that was never the same twice. Later I found out they were blackbirds. And well, I’d never heard them before I moved to Sevilla and I started looking forward to their annual arrival. So this morning I lay in bed with that sudden feeling of joy listening to my first blackbird as best I could (it’s times like these the double-glazed windows are not so appreciated). And about half an hour ago a blackbird landed on the living room balcony railing right in front of me and perched there for awhile. All I could think was it was a good thing the doors were closed or Luna would have gone over the top…

Anyhow, this is actually one of my favourite White Album songs. Enjoy.
