May 2021 Summer is late and waiting on the Holy Spirit

There's a sense of being a little stuck and unsure what is next. Recorded on the eve of the next stage of lockdown easing, mid May but summer that should have started May 1st still not really here: temperatures are down on yearly averages, soggy blossom is stuck on the trees unpollinated, farmers say crops are late. And in the Christian calendar in the journey from Easter, Christ has ascended and we await the glorious descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, a week away. And, from the sublime to the ridiculous, the Friends cast has reassembled: stuck in 2nd gear?!
