I sat in the stillness and watched a prism of colors slowly illuminate the sky until daylight broke.
I contemplated darkening all of the windows and summoning sleep but instead I went to work where I acquired my current raspy throat.
My Irish grandma had the best remedy :
Boil water with a squirt of fresh lemon
Pour the lemon water over black tea
Add a shot of Irish Whiskey
Take a spoonful of honey and mix it all together.
So as the Harvest Moon painted the sky tonight I sipped my tea and the stillness returned.
