Month: August 2014

Supermoon Sunday

The nearest the moon has been to the earth for 20 years. Therefore looking bigger and brighter. Hence “Supermoon”.

Or “Perigee Moon” to give its lovelier astronomical name.

I stayed up till 1 in the morning watching as it tracked across the town. Best was when it got captured then released by fast foaming clouds. Giving off the illusion of a rapidly, and magically, moving moon.

It’s easy to find the right musical accompaniment; Gregory Alan Isakov’s “That Moon Song”

A lovely song for a lovely moon.

Staralfur (Staring Elf)

Ian: ……shhhhh…….. an elf is staring at you……..

………………………………….. from behind…… the sofa…………………….”

Hazel: …..I was just this minute listening to it !!!……wonderful….the very first sounds…music ..that links me completely with my visions of …’Faerie’……thank you so much…..and those miniscule ….mini ..mini …sounds right at the end….perfect !”

I’m sending Hazel the lyrics

Blue night over the sky
Blue night over me
Disappearing out the window
With my hands
Hidden under my cheeks
I think about my day
Today and yesterday
I put on my blue pajamas
Go straight to bed
I caress the soft covers
Close my eyes
I hide my head under the sheets
A little elf stares at me
Turns me in, but doesn’t stir
From his place – himself
A staring elf
I open my eyes
The crusts come off
I stretch myself and check (If I haven’t)
Once again and everything is okay
Still there is something missing
Like all the walls
(A little elf stares at me)
(Turns me in)
From his place – himself
I am…

Hazel: …….was it you who sent the elf?………..

Ian: ……I did…..he’s a very cuddly elf….. he’ll make you cups of tea if you ask him nicely…..

……a very obliging little chap….

Grow Till Tall

Today (21st August) was the very first time Haze and I met online.

Right at the end of our messaging together I sent her the link to this…….


“The elemental world of your paintings and his music seem to go together” I said.

I kind of intuited they would.

And they did. And they do.

She’s loved little gay elfin boy Jonsi ever since (and Sigur Ros too)
