i've got antarctica on the mind today


Missing the gnashing teeth of the cold, the blinding starkness of the snow, and the melancholy songs of the ever-present wind.

Sigh.

  4. Oh, so pretty to even think about it. Thank you for taking me there for a moment.

    These weeks I have been going on a Constellation course once a week. There I have learnt so many new things about the stars and space. And how different it really looks from different parts of our planet. I wonder how the sky was from your spot there in the wind.

    Have a calm weekend, Liz.

    1. nothing has shattered my heart like seeing the stars in antarctica. i'm sure they're similarly devastating in your neck of the woods, but wow. and to see the southern lights with your naked eyes! but yes, i had a very hard time identifying any constellations aside from the southern cross.
