Skies

Know now that you are born along with these
clouds, winds, and stars, and ever-moving seas

Much have I travelled in the realms of gold

Well on Sunday I had a super day wandering in the spring sunshine and taking photergraphs. It was a glorious sunset and I climbed up the path beside the A406 where you can overlook all of northwest London, and watched the sky shading from crimson and gold into rose and peach and then darkest blue. It is a beautiful evening moon at the moment as well so there is the curious specktacle of me communing with Nature, sitting beside the North Circular Road as heavy lorries thunder past and surrounded by crisp packets and empty fried chicken containers. You have to take communion with Nature where you can find it around these parts.

It was super sunshine today so I went out investergating. I investergated some local robins! Also I walked all along the river and saw some magpies, blue tits, coots, moorhens, a swallow, some mallards and herring gulls, and a Mrs Blackbird. It does not get any better than that I am thinking.

The weekend is one of the best times to notice birds, as during the week they are all at school obviously.

It was a grand day for being out and about and sitting and looking at things, and looking and thinking, and sitting and looking. In the evening it was a beautiful orange sky in the west and pink in the east, the belt of Venus. In between all shades of blue, and a super crescent moon!
