During one of my treasured walks in the woods last November, the darkness of night began early…as it does that time of year. It crept up on me as I searched for bits of leaves, vines and milkweed pods and whatever else was hanging on despite the cold. Many deserved a close up as the light provided center stage opportunity. Click. Click. Click.
Hold still. The light is perfect. Thank you!
Then the sun began its predictable disappearing act…leaving a bit of brightness in the sky long enough to be captured. I appreciated the opportunity…as a few minutes later it was gone. And I was on my way back home.
Weekend Sky #22
Looks like a meeting to me.
And the sun is in charge…
On this beautiful bright weekend day.
One Word Sunday: Light
It’s been one of those weeks. You know, one you’d like to forget…pretend it’s a dream.
However…today brought with it the promise of longer days with the beginning of daylight savings time where I live. I know the days aren’t really longer, but the hours of daylight will begin to stretch well past dinnertime. I’ll take more light however I can get it.
The sun kept teasing me this morning as I sat at my computer. It would shine through my window…and then disappear…shining…disappearing. It got me out of my chair. I stepped outside and was greeted by a cloud parade playing hide and seek. Or was it the sun playing hide and seek? I watched and waited and clicked.
In capturing the action – and probably staring into the sun too long – I began noticing the clouds making faces. Or something. Whatever was going on, I got it.

Given the current pandemic, I thought it might be of interest to take a different approach to the theme of Spread… While the spread of a virus is not welcome, a nice dinner spread or bread spread or even bed spread might be appreciated!
I love this time of day…
right before dark.
Even with clouds spread overhead…
glimmers of light sift through.
I like to think of it as the blanket effect.
Comforting and safe underneath.

A walk on the beach this winter was well worth a look up…as an entire family of clouds floated by.
