The post title comes from the Roy Orbison song ‘When the Blue Hour Comes.’

The good times are all gone
The night keeps coming on so strong
You can’t hold on, no matter what you do
Will there be someone who cares for you
When the blue hour comes?
When the blue hour comes?

And when your restless heart
Tears your world apart
And everywhere you turn
It’s falling down on you
Will there be a light that shines for you?

I couldn’t find a recording of Orbison singing it, but I do like this version by Joan Osborne.

Sometimes a moment is so perfect, you have to stop what you are doing and appreciate it. Last Friday night the Big T and I were driving along beside Lake Rotorua when I saw these amazing shafts of light. The Big T obligingly pulled over so that I could take some photos.

This image speaks so much to me of how nature constantly presents us with jaw-dropping beauty; it’s up to us to open our eyes to it.
