The Aurora from Home and a Selfish Wish

We sat with a friend on the sofa in the library (there’s two book shelves, let’s not kid ourselves) with the lights off watching out the back window the aurora dance everywhere we could see. It’s not unusual to see from our home, but it is a treat and worth pausing the Great British Bake Off for.
Tonight my guests arrived after midnight on the flight from Vancouver, so after a quick rendezvous in arrivals and collection of baggage, we hurried out to a nearby lake for the last half of the evening, and after wishing through the night for the aurora to wait for us, she did, and was still pleasantly active into the early morning hours.
