After dark


Largely indoors as a friend visited today, so my wanderings didn’t get underway until after dark. But there was a certain charm in it.

The iPhone in my pocket not only captured this image but apparently had miraculous and informative chats with my Fitbit wrist tracker, cheered me along with favourite songs (Andy Williams’ Born Free is great when you’re chugging uphill!), kept a check on heartbeat, pace and coverage, (am I dead or anything? – let me just check: no, says not, thankfully, but my flat feet hurt!).

Clever though it be, the iPhone didn’t quite capture the peace all-around as flocks of sheep, chewing still, as though someone had given them each a pack of Wrigleys, finally lay down. Some inner clock had told them ‘it’s time to rebuild your strength.’ My inner clock told me it was time for supper, even having had a sizeable lunch …

  1. Sheep chewing as if given gum…what a visual (and would that the photo had captured them!). Nonetheless, there is a calm here, a sense of what may not appear in the scene, yet one knows it’s there…xx


  2. When my eyes landed on this photo, I immediately thought of a warm, woolen throw, Simon. Such a cozy, comforting, quiet scene. So glad that you had a chance to take it in (and get those requisite steps in, too! 🙂 )xo


Drop me a note - I'm always glad to hear from you
