Sunset 22 June 2021 - MIRANDA VAN ROSSUM
The first thing I noticed was the noise. Don’t know why, but I was expecting it to be so much quieter. Also – insects. Again, don’t know why I thought there wouldn’t be any up this high but there were plenty. Mainly mozzies, so was pleased I was behind glass!
I loved watching the birds, especially the flocks of tiny black birds that kept on flying by. It took me a while to move beyond just observing and for my mind to slow down. It wasn’t until the last twenty minutes or so, when the sun started to set properly, that I became fully focused on just that, and very in the moment.
One of the reasons I signed up for this particular slot was that I wanted to hold on to the light for as long as possible, and I hope I did.
Hold on to the light, and remember, you’re above it all. You can hear it, you can register it, but you don’t have to let it in.
