Winter sunsets by the sea, here in Coolum, Queensland, often have a sugar-almond blush … before the stars come out.
And now the purple dust of twilight time …
‘Stardust‘ written by Hoagy Carmichael, was one of the romantic songs my father liked to sing over the years. When it was his turn at family celebrations, he would stand in front of the fireplace. We all sat round our living room, hushed, expectant. Inspired by Nat King Cole, he’d smoothly slip into the song, looking at mum and she’d blush. The rest of us were held spell-bound there, till he raised his glass to her at the end, and we did the same.
