The goatherd sleeps, his faithful dog at his side.

It’s autumn, and ConcertFM are asking what animal is musically referred to in Vivaldi’s spring concerto! Sorry, wrong season; something from the Sleeping Drunkards (Autumn) would have been more appropriate, rather than the Sleeping Goatherd. Both have dogs in them.

Lay in bed last night thinking about the tasks I have to do before next Tuesday for my assignment. Eventually I disciplined myself to ‘hand my fears over to god’, and soon after fell asleep.

Can I do the same tonight? I’m a little closer to understanding my tasks.
