National Geographic filmmakers Claus and Anneliese Possberg put together this outstanding time lapse video showing the aurora borealis (northern lights) dancing and crackling across the evening sky in Norway.

When she’s not writing for a living and for pleasure, she enjoys bird-watching, reading, drinking wine, cooking, and SHORT walks on the beach because the summer southeasterly winds in Cape Town are a real bitch.

  1. It is simply beautiful to watch such wonder in the skies. ( I will always use infuriating inspirational quotes in posts and elsewhere) – perhaps because people do actually enjoy them. 🙂

      1. Humour. It’s a thing… look it up.

        Writing is my passion and my vocation, so to say I don’t appreciate the power of words is beyond erroneous of you. I just find some inspirational quotes to be overly sentimental and that’s my opinion.
