Strange, returned from the West country only a couple of days ago. The area is is one of the few places in the UK where the Milky way can be observed withoutn crashing light polution - its was awesome !

It was not a huge charter but it has a good feeling to it as long as you can survive the bagpipe hit in the middle.

The light pollution is minimised here too. if you ever find yourself in this direction I'll take you on a bike ride and demonstrate.

I have not rode a push bike in decades!
Or did you mean something with a good few CC ?

I live in a very small town,(less than 2000 people), and even here the best way to look at the stars is to drive outside of town and look at them.

If I was a Church-goer, this would be my cathedral.  I feel closest to divinity when I am in nature.  I have a somewhat different concept of deity than many people. Thanks for sharing this. Love the song!

If God is all seeing and all present, then God IS nature and you ARE in his church when standing under the milky way. I sleep outside often just because it is good having infinity start just above your head.

Glad you liked the song.

The operative word being, "if".  :rofl:  But yes, I hear you and I have always felt closer being in nature than I ever did inside a building setting on a pew.  That is awesome; that you sleep outside.  I haven't slept outside in years and years.  Actually wouldn't feel safe doing it, even in the small town I live in. Camping, that would be okay but have not done that in 30 -35 years either. 
I was raised on a farm and all these years later I still miss that life.   There is a peace and tranquility that comes with being outside in the open, feeling the wind on your face, the warmth of the sun.  Hearing the birds, (thank goodness for my hearing aids)!
Getting old is not for sissies! 
On the song, strangely enough, I don't remember ever having heard it before, but I should have in my life span!
:lmao:

This is England, very, very safe here indeed. Nothing to fear but hedgehogs...

The song will grow on you, the more you play it. It was well received in the UK when it came out (decades ago) but never really popular. There was so much good music that was being generated that it was lost.

Temperature 17 degrees I am thinking of sleeping out tonight. I am assembling an iron bedstead for the garden for more permanent sleeping arrangements.

That is awesome!  My grandparents had an old brass bedstead that they had all their lives.  They celebrated their 62nd anniversary and then my grandfather departed this life.  So that brass bedstead was around for a long, long time.  I don't know what ever happened to it after they both departed this life.  Hmm.  Sorry, just thinking...

That is sad. My bed was the place where my daughter was created...

Its refreshing, liberating even to shake off the the various religious clubs force fed us. To free your mind in a field, up a tree or on a beach brought me closer to a peace of mind and "something"  than anything I can remember.

So very true!  There is such a difference between spirituality and religion as it is.  Some people are "religious" about their bank balance, you know?  :nod:  Liberating is the word I use.

I have been a part of that corporate thing where god is sought in the margins and souls lost in the pusuit of material wealth. I finished up not even liking myself ... they can keep it ;)

Fortunately, I have never had that experience but I have talked to a few people in my lifetime that have been there.  Same with their experiences.  Power and money, not a good combination in my mind.
