Moon over Vermont — original photograph by Nandini Bhattacharya
Moon over Vermont. The other night. Mist on the fields and fireflies in the air. The dark sky suddenly burst into an unearthly luminescence and the dark earth winked back with a hearthfire.
I saw, as if for the first time, the beauty of dark nature. I saw the silver sea of light flooding sky and putting land to rest. I saw the sublime.
