If I'm going to wake in the wee hours every morning,
might as well get up and take a look out the windows.

What a gift for a person who - sometimes, still - yearns for travel.

I loved living in the mountains.
I was just travelling through
and I stayed seven years.

I've always dreamt of living on the shore of a lake.
I wonder if I ever will.

The ghost-moon reflecting in the double panes
was confusing my camera,
so I opened the window.

It didn't help with the focus.

But that's when I heard the owl.
