Serenity

Night becomes ordinary and is uneventful. An overcast relieves the sky of half its burden of stars. There is no moon. The dark trees seem weightless, hovering between invisible ground and vague heavens. The cold air is utterly still. No sound but my footsteps breaks the silence. Hours pass and nothing happens, nothing changes but the mottled pattern of the sky and the stars that emerge and are concealed, again and again. I think the world is slowing to a stop.

Sometimes I'm amused by the utterly expected.

I just want to say that, so far, I'm absolutely delighted with Aspell, the GNU open source spell checking program I picked up to use with Opera, as mentioned in my post last night. It kicks all kinds of ass! I much prefer it to LJ's spell checking programs at either the web update page or in the Visions client. The above link is to the version for Windows, but I noticed that they have a Debian package here. Your choice of 22 languages!
