It’s Cold outside. Really cold. 3 Centimetres of ice on the pond cold.
The sky though, is stunning.
I knew it would be. The winter Sun had watched me at work all day from a clear blue sky.
It’s just after seven and above is a sky that holds you in stunned silence. Clear, crisp, still, full of stars, a sharp moon casts its waxing gibbous light over the spreading frost and catches the moist breath escaping from the scarf wrapped around my face. It is beautiful almost beyond description.
