Tonight there was a full moon and it was so light in the night that the snow sparkled. Tiny flecks of blue light glistened in the snow. At first it was an utterly clear night, then a mist descended, putting the moon in a halo and shrouding the trees in a vapor. The light was so strong before the mist that although dark, one could see a mile across the fields and hills – all utterly still. Modern man has lost so much by creating urban environments. It is only when faced with nature alone that the words and works of men fall into perspective.
