Personal and political; Paul Weller’s thirty-year old hit ‘My Ever Changing Moods’ nicely captures how I’m feeling right now.

I wish we’d come to our senses and see there is no truth
In those who promote the confusion
For this ever changing mood, yeah

 Daylight turns to moonlight and I’m at my best
Praising the way it all works, and gazing upon the rest, yeah
The cool before the warm, the calm after the storm
The cool before the warm, the calm after the storm
