Night Walking


After a 3 week break, Nighttime on Still Waters is back with episode 40! In this episode we catch up with what has been happening on the moorings and reflect on the place of night walking in history and culture.  

Journal entry:

“5th August, Thursday

High in a tree a blackbird
   Sings into the night.

A river of notes
    Pours into the cabin. 

There are no stars
    Just music.”     

Episode Information

In this episode I refer to:

Miles Hadfield’s (1950) An English Almanac published by JM Dent and Sons.
