We live in a world of coincidences, but sometimes they seem to come along fast and furiously. I’m experiencing a bit of that now with the connections that keep arising in my life here in Yellowknife.
Yesterday I was looking at the CBC News site, and discovered a photo, taken the day before in Yellowknife, of the ‘blood moon’ rising. (click on colored text to go to the link). It was actually taken on the ice right by our place, and in fact features the houseboat of Kuzman, our close neighbour. Strange to see this on the national news service. And what was even more strange is that Martin and I were inside our house viewing that same moon at that same time. So you can see exactly what we saw, compliments of CBC News!
The view was even better last night, as I returned home from work around 11 pm. Not only was the blood moon rising again, but this time the sky was alive with northern lights as well. The lights have been pretty fantastic of late – I think this winter was especially good. (Except for when we had company, then they didn’t appear. Perhaps that means our company will come back?)
I for one love these small and interesting examples of how so many pieces of our lives are connected in a larger sense. For my next post I have an even better example of that, so stay tuned!
