Since dialogue began the weather has invaded our emotions, directly affecting them and flooding the language we use for them. Whether it is cloudy, rainy, stormy or sunny we could be looking upwards or inwards.

Even through a year spent mostly in lock down I’ve been unable to escape my dependence on the state of the sky. I thanked it as time flew through bright and sunny days in the first few months and have cursed it through slower, darker, wetter days more recently!

Undoubtedly our thousands of years on this planet have intrinsically bonded us emotionally to its varied species and weather.
