Number two: August darkness

Sometime during May, all darkness bleeds out of the night sky in Norway and settles quietly in the trees and boughs and bushes. But come Mid-August, it drifts upwards into the air again, making room for deeper sleep, stars and candles, and kinder lighting for the fresh students stealing kisses on the street outside.

I love it. I love August.

oooo, yes, Tone, I couldn't agree more!
I also love the sudden darkness of August nights.

Like it has nothing to do with your birthday being in August. In two days, no less.

Yeah right ;)

Haha. Yes, lots of good things in August.

I love Norway. It's light and hot and sticky and loud here. And, as your other post reminds me, blueberry season has peaked already. Good thing bacon is ALWAYS in season.
