I checked the forecast after dinner this evening, and seeing that there is a possibility of rain overnight, once more mounted the scaffolding and climbed onto the roof to protect today's work. As I was fixing the cover down I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye. The moon, just above the trees; huge, smiling and bright against a quickly deepening sky. Just a cheek in shadow. I stopped what I was doing, and for a few long moments gazed back at the face gazing down at me. It seemed very close.
