Don’t you love midnights? The velvet depth of the blanket darkness, the subtle twinkle clarity of the stars, the rustle of possums in the trees, the low hum of distant cars, the quiet settled feeling that many loved ones would most likely be safe in their beds, dreaming. This is the feeling I get when I look at my midnight blue stones. It’s related to the sunstone (but is an antithesis due to its colour), which is normally beigey-orangey-browny golden – hard colour to describe – see here. Decided to have some fun with it (at midnight!) and matched it up with some purple crystal stones and an odd-shaped piece of 3mm dia. sterling silver loop I ‘play-made’ but never used.
Together with this necklace (AUD125), I leave thee for the glorious weekend to come, with a little poem.
A Clear Midnight
THIS is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou
Night, sleep, and the stars.
– Walt Whitman
