3am thought of the day/night


A silent star

3am does seem to be the time when I do my thinking, nowadays. Today's item: last night at 3am I was looking out of the window at the stars while feeding Rowan, and it struck me that even though stars are superhot boiling balls of angry, firey hydrogen, they burn in absolute silence (there's nothing for sound waves to exist in). It seems strange, and poetic. Rob's comment: There's a knack to choosing pictures that enhance the mood of a blog post. This is not one of my best efforts.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
