The bit in-between

No sooner have you taken off than you hear the flaps go down and it’s time for a landing. So it is with Westray’s winter days. No sooner have you had a sunrise than it’s suddenly time for a sunset. Both are short. Both are trapped between beginnings and endings. The bit in between though, the bit in between is exhilarating.
