Itís dark at the moment. Along the river I can see the dome of St. Paulís Cathedral lit up against the pre-dawn sky while next to it rises one of the many new arrivals on the ever-changing London skyline. It too is brightly lit though as yet unfinished. True, Iím setting out a little earlier than I usually do. I have a few matters to attend to before the students arrive today. Iím kicking off a new project on Matisse and I have a report I need to fax off by 5:00pm. But itís clear, nonetheless: autumn has finally arrived.
