Last night, for the second evening in succession, I’m somewhat awe-struck by the clarity of the night sky. To be able to see such a wonderful patterning of stars, rather than the more usual occasional random pin-prick through a semi-opaque canopy, is an absolute delight. One suddenly becomes aware of the vastness of the universe and, marvels at the fact that we can manage to live, breathe and have our being on this little rock, called earth, as it pirouettes on its axis in space.
On nights like this, I feel quite intoxicated by the simple fact of being alive. This delight is intensified by the presence of ma belle amoureuse. It is quite wonderful to have, wife, lover, friend and companion, all rolled into one, as together we spin giddily through space.
