A bank of rain clouds is sprinkling us and Great Cove last night as the sun goes down, but there’s a band of clearing sky beyond Deer Isle in the west:


As the sun disappears, a good wind comes and scatters the lower clouds, allowing some reflected light through while the rain eases off and stops:


The sky soon clears and the stars and planets shine brightly. The familiar profiles of the actors stay the same, but their moods and costumes continually change in this marvelous play. (Brooklin, Maine)
