Tonight’s early evening sky had a wash of palest blue, with a flush in places of rose pink, all overlaid with smudges of windswept charcoal. I watched it change, and as we travelled the blue deepened until it was truly dark.
I noticed this on the way to Scout’s
parents ‘student review evening’ just after we had squeezed around the roundabout, avoiding the turning where the ambulance and police cars were acting as an effective road block. By the time we reached school is was completely dark. We commented on how the evenings are really drawing out now.
