May I just say how very grateful I am to the good souls among the readers at the British Library who are kind and good enough to share their iTunes music on the wifi network? They're largely anonymous. The person who today labels their file My Brit Library Ear Candy has just enabled me to walk around the public areas on the first floor while listening to the incredible Requiem by Ligeti, best known as the soundtrack music for the part of Kubrick's 2001 that begins with the words JUPITER AND BEYOND THE INFINITE projected on screen. A freaky experience, thoroughly enjoyable.
Thanks to these beneficent folk I've also been listening to things I never knew I liked, like Led Zeppelin and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Meanwhile the rewrite goes on.
