The Gathering Gloom


There's a song by the Moody Blues that I love called Late Lament.

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.


Sometimes the skies above Powell Lake appear to be gathering gloom.


Another line says, Senior citizens wish they were young.


That just how living up the lake makes us feel, young!

Want to hear it as a song?

  2. You really captured some superb light there Margy. I especially like that top one. Sorry but I don't remember that one by the Moody Blues - guess I should - right generation.

  4. Such wonderful moody scenes - just perfect for this time of the year. Did you get much of the storm? Bellingham just got a swish and a drip and off the store went - up your way - or were you in Bellingham too? Glad it was not the horror that they were predicting.

    1. We had rain and wind, but nothing like they predicted. Now last night was a whole different storm! - Margy

  6. Moody blues ... or no, that's a different band.. Moody skies, I meant. Gray skies are at least interesting on your Lake. I can't ever find much to get excited about them here. I don't wish I were young ... I'm too tired to do that again )))!
