Synaesthesia … sort of

Working yesterday on Become: Organised and, in the background, half listening to Weather Report (Tale Spinnin’) which I haven’t listened to for many years. Gradually my thoughts, deep and profound up to then, were diverted into Physical Geography, especially glaciated landscapes. Pictures of U shaped valleys, arretes, cirques-cwms-or-corries, moraines and drumlins drifted in unbidden until I snapped to and realised that this was the very music I used to listen to constantly while preparing for my A-Levels. A period of silence allowed me to complete the bit I was working on, but I shall have to go over it again to check for unwanted diversions having intruded into the code.
