April 30th 2021, would have been Captain Tom Moore’s one hundred and first birthday, and in recognition of that, a new challenge has been announced that ordinary folk should try to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation. My own challenge is to write over a hundred days, a 100 word blog each day.
Those warm soft nights, when the windows are open and night air stirs the curtains into a lazy flap, it’s pleasant to be half awake, drifting towards sleep, hearing the night sounds, creatures about in the dark, a distant motorbike, an aircraft droning homewards, voices of late walkers in the street.
Turn over, pull the sheet across your shoulder, push the pillow into shape and let the last of that day slip away, a few thoughts tumble incoherently, pushed aside by incoming dreams. Soon you enter that weird night world of different consciousness, which, by dawn is most oft forgot.
