I'd like to know if anyone out there knows how you take pictures of the night sky. There was such a beautiful moon tonight, with those little scudding silver clouds all around.
A dreamy song drifted up from someone's garden a few doors away, and I lay in my bath, bathed in silver rather than Clary Sage for once listening to...well Who WAS that lovely male vocalist with his whimsical melodies and that gorgeous string arrangement shimmering through the trees as they whispered their gentle accompaniment? I should have been out there lying on silk cushions and drinking tea from a glass it was so lovely.
I'm so lucky to be able to lie in the bath for over an hour with the sash window open, looking out over a really beautiful nocturnal vista of trees, occasionally softly lit by a garden candle or patio light. By daylight it's nothing special. It needs dusky shadows and a breeze to bring it to life.
Even when temperatures hit below zero I bet money on me still having the window wide open. It's too special an experience to miss. It's when the streets fall quiet and you hear foxes and owls. Imagine added frost and stars. I'll just have to add more hot water.
