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.
“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
