I was drawing some extra bits and pieces for the motion graphics of the beach cricket below, and had to come up with a new bowler with whom to start the story ...

and as I did I began to feel another dready growing out of it all ...  something simpler, more subtle ...

and this was it. eh ... as the last days of summer begin to fade and the light changes, softer, less sudden ...

I can remember only ever doing it twice, but who knows -100 years ago as a small boy and more recently as a grown ass man(ish) being ... once in Kent and once in Sussex I watched village cricket: the Sussex one is gone really, just remember the lovely pitch, down from the road in a hollow on the way to the house I was staying ... 

but the one in Kent where I sat in the cool grass near the boundary - I was 9 or 10, and watched the game ... probably my first time and first summer-ish day in britain ...

cricket at home had been hot and dusty and dry, the ground as hard as the willow of a bat ... I mean not a Sabina park with grandpa, that's not dusty, but village cricket, farm cricket, is dusty and red dusty ... there is a dusty red cricket ground (also football pitch, same time) just outside golden grove, on the steer town road between moneague and drax hall ... in the days before the highway, we'd pass it, and always, on a weekend there was a game in play, sometimes would stop and get a drink at the bar cross the road ... 

when I was doing the research looking at the vibes of cricket often the pictures were of kids playing on pitches like that in India, in Africa ... 

shine ...
