good evening

This Beltane has coiled into a lovely dark peace. I spent hours this afternoon composing a blogpost I won't publish for a couple of weeks, so now I have nothing to give you but the darkness outside my door, the peace.

My mouth is full of fairytale. My heart is full of old love. Tonight I will listen for fairy bells, which I have heard before singing over the cliffs above the night sea, and amongst the white rose trees. Every night is a magical night, but sometimes we remember to feel it.


As for the photograph - it was taken through the car window as we drove through remote, dawn-lit countryside. I thought the house looked so old and interesting beneath the heavy dark hills, I hurried to get a shot. Only after I uploaded the picture to my computer did I find that there was an airplane infront of the house.

Everyday magic.

  1. Beautifully written, and such an air of mystery with the photo.

  2. I know the feeling of being deeply immersed in artful work. It is engaging and sometimes thrilling, and often magical. I have felt that way much of the last few weeks as I see pictures everywhere I look and carry my camera always. Your image today is full of mystery and intrigue - and I could see the story being warm and heartfelt or perhaps a tale of adventure or maybe sadness? Great view and the texture of the car window . . . an added bonus in this case.

    1. Actually, the car window left no overlay - this is two edited textures.

  8. A perfect Halloween photo, so ghostly feeling. And a magically appearing plane to add to the fun!

  9. Lol, I hadn't thought of Halloween! I must confess I despise the American Halloween tradition, I am old school pagan from way back and I hate to see what has been done to a sacred holy day, probably the same way some Christians dislike the emphasis on chocolate at Easter. It's Beltane here at the moment - all life and love and sunshine. :-)
