As I’m now a country bumpkin there are certain things I can’t control or situations that might not normally happen in a city. A farmer ploughed through the power cable on Sunday so we had a power outtage. The one time I could star gaze with absolutely no haze and it was cloudy 😂. Then they got a mega Optimus prime style generator which has been keeping everyone powered up until 7.30am this morning when the alternator went and we were again without power.
Within this time I’ve realised that I should probably get an actual watch (instead of relying on my phone for time updates) I’ve spent more time outside and sat reading books by candlelight and just enjoyed the silence (how very Depeche mode of me).
Is there anything more magical and serene than looking up at the moon in the midnight sky whilst sitting in a room lit only by candles, no background noise just… stillness of being.
If there is.. I look forward to experiencing that too. Technology is amazing, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes just existing between stars and candlelight is all I want and all I need.
