One Meteor A Minute
The Artist enjoys a meteor shower. In winter they usually occur the other side of midnight so long as temperatures are in the teens and wind chills well below zero. And if I remember, it's also important for there to be that sense of something unfriendly with hot breath in the undergrowth staring back at you.
All of which generally prohibits my own participation in the process of dressing up as an Inuit, going outside in the middle of the night, staring heavenward, where if a person is lucky enough to have excellent peripheral vision, good concentration and the ability not to blink, he might see one meteor a minute.
