Up till now I had been spared from serious toothache.
Up till Friday night that is – when a robust toothache declared itself with a vengeance, firmly resolved to stay with me all weekend. And viciously spreading throbbing pain not only in teeth but also in head, jaw and ear.
Awaiting Monday’s visit to the dentist there has been plenty of time to ponder the ineffectiveness of prescription-free painkillers. And neither did reading offer an escape, as pain messes too much with concentration.
But Mozart has been soothing, as has been a walk in the woods.
Browsing through old pictures has proven a fine distraction too – especially when engaging in a game of guessing the season purely from the quality of the light.
So that explains the presence here of two unseasonal urban autumn light pictures. One was taken on the yearly car-free Sunday in September, mid to late afternoon. The other one was taken on a train, on a late October or September afternoon.
