In The Spotlight


Light filters through the forest surrounding our house at sundown, and sometimes, like yesterday evening, it becomes a flickering spotlight through a bedroom window. This small phenomenon lasts only brief minutes before the angle of the sun against poplar leaves changes, but if I’m lucky, and one of our cats is curled on the end of our bed (almost a sure thing, as Tabby demonstrates), the effect is dramatic, spontaneous, and beautiful. It’s one reason I keep the Sony NEX on my desk now, because you never know when magic will appear.
