The Usual Stressing
The usual stressing of patience, not so much stress itself.
The stressing should have been of the journey and hope over a hundred plus kilometres to clear skies, but as it turns not, not more than 50 was necessary, and what a beautiful relief that was.
And then, of course, there was the aurora. From hours of the most gentle arcs across an ever increasingly clear sky, to two break-ups late in our night.
The dream is always that stressing patience will result in the opposite of anything stressful.
