‘Arctic’ – Day 174/365

ORIGINAL COPY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM DURING THE CHALLENGE

You know how they say it’s better to experience something just once than to hear about it a thousand times.
.
The Northern Lights must be one of those things. I cannot fathom a sky this colour. And no amount of photos or paintings can make me really grasp it. But I’m certain, seeing it just once will be enough.
.
Because an arctic colour like this must surely burn itself into the deep recesses of your mind.
.
One day, when I’m old, wise and grey, after accidentally staring into the sun too long while gardening, I will no longer see spots when I close my eyes, I will see the Northern Lights all over again. I’m sure of it.
