A Patient Knowing

"Are we going to see some green tonight, Sean?" she says leaning in closely and cosily over a piece of furniture inside the Explorer Hotel lobby. 

See some green. Not photograph some green. 

I explained that the most important part of being an aurora guide is to be non-committal. What did you think I was going to say? Yes?

But after hours and hours, and hours, of the most certain build-up to a substorm, purple, pink, and of course green so bright you could never mistake it, danced all across the sky to end our night. A little bit perfect, I think.
