Chilling with an Earl Grey outside the International Festival pavillion 1

I’m in a deck chair, so I may be trapped.

Thoughts on Thought For The Day

I wake up to the Today programme on Radio 4. Then I hit the snooze button and try to get a few more minutes shut eye. This continues for an hour or so, with me leaving the radio on for interesting bits of news. I always turn off Thought for the Day, because it’s invariably banal. Maybe if they change the rules to include the occasional non-religious speaker that might change. One day a week where a speaker argues for morality without reference to an ancient book or imaginary historical figure will be refreshing and make the gods squad up their game to stay relevant.
