All in a Bright Clear Sky

Went up to Throssel on Saturday to attend a memorial service for a monk who had recently died. It was a short, simple service. The sun shone brightly all day and the clear skies persisted on into the evening.
Sitting in the back seat of the car as we sped down the M6 back to Lancaster I could watch the light change as the sun set behind the clearly etched Lakeland fells. The blue of the sky gave way to sublte coppery colours as the Sun's light faded. Then out came the evening star, - Venus, - as clear and bright as any moon.
Rev. Mugo has written about this clarity over these last few days. You can read this here. "Looking up and looking out."
