“The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees, The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor…”20120308-052239.jpg

There’s too much to think about and the moon is too bright. I should not have watched the beginning of Wuthering Heights before bed! Now I am wide awake wandering the moor as Harry sleeps soundly.

Today I swun the boys under purple budded branches and over a carpet of emerald moss. I felt like I was there in Yorkshire, the earth still barren and frozen, just waiting for a warm breath of Spring to stir it to life. I feel a bit the same way.

We’re supposed to be able to see the northern lights tonight. There is cloud cover in the north but I am imagining them dancing above our house. Maybe it will help lull me back to sleep for what is left of the night.
