It takes practice and experimentation. Try skipping, laughing outloud, being silly, unrestrained awe and wonder, exhuberant humbleness, foolish wonder, dynamic peacefulness, and deep connectivity.

Also, have dessert, sleep late, and splash in rain puddles.

Does sitting on a windy Welsh hill all night count?

Are you moved by the wonderous beauty of the everlasting stars?

Looking for UFOs and waving to them?

Trying to convince people that on clear nights you can see the lines in the constellations?

I think it's a good spot for it, really.

I certainly am, but on Monday night there was a bright moon and some high cloud so I didn't see that many stars (a few more after the moon set). I did see a series of "stars" that seemed to start in the area of Bristol airport and then head west :)

Looking for UFOs and waving to them?
Never, knowingly, seen one but waving sounds like a good idea.

Trying to convince people that on clear nights you can see the lines in the constellations?
Join the dots in the sky ... shame the numbers are so small :)

I think it's a good spot for it, really.
It actually was quite cold and windy - I hadn't thought it through enough :( I was 461 meters above sea-level and the wind was howling around the hill. I spent most of the night huddled down on the down-wind side, which wasn't too bad, eating energy bars and drinking sips of energy drink. did I mention that I forgot my coat and was just wearing a T-shirt and a thich cotton shirt (and trousers etc)? Did I mention that although I had planned to have my car close by so I could pop back and sleep in it, it was actually about an hour's hike away down a steep trail through forest that would have little light to show me my footing? [I'm stressing about that apostrophe after "hour" - I think it's right but a little doubt is NORing @ me.]

On the way back down to my car I passed a small lake and the fish were leaping out of the water after flies - I stopped to watch for a few minutes.

Peace

Happy Solstice to you too, Peter. You were so lovely during my drama, after the earthquakes. Thank you. MUAH!

Thank you.

I must admit that I'd be interested in seeing/feeling what an earthquake is like :) but then I wanted to go and look at the tornado when I was in Boulder years ago but Kim wouldn't let me walk outside the mall 'till the all-clear.

Peace

Silly man. Some folks like quakes, but then again, some folks are nutso! I don't like the ground beneath me moving, unless there is a very likable face attached to it! :)

So if you sat on me and I smiled during an earthquake ... maybe we'd better not go there ;)

Ha! Thought so :) There is an OEDILF community here as well, but it's only so we can still chat when their server is down (only ever happened once which was when I created the community). As you might well guess I'm psheil on the OEDILF site. It is worth digging around in the forums as well to get an idea of the way people work there - also have a look at the WSing (workshopping) of some limericks to see how group editing of a limerick works - my avinosis and anatiferous are good examples of that whereas my amplification shows how long-winded the process can be (but don't let that put you off).

ny questions feel free to contact me :)

Happy rhyming

Oh shoot! The vernal equinox is in the spring! I was getting my phrases mixed up. I thought vernal equinox was another term for summer solstice and was trying to remember what the other ones were. Now I just look like a fool.

Equinox comes, I think, from the Latin for equal nights. On the two equinoxes (equini???) the day and night is 12 hours everywhere on the planet (except for the poles where the sun sits on the horizon for 24 hours).

Now I just look like a fool.
No, not at all. I assumed you meant the autumnal equinox and were effectively wishing me well for the next three months. :)

Peace
