145: Sky dreaming in colors

(A celebration in the sky.)

The heart is always the place to go.  Go home into your heart, where there is warmth, appreciation, gratitude and contentment.

The sun and sky threw a big party yesterday evening and they invited almost all of the colors of the rainbow to join them in their celebration.  It was a stunning sunset.

A flock of geese flew by, adding their music to the celebration.  Just as I thought it couldn’t get any better, it would.

This morning’s sunrise was almost as stunning.  I was in the kitchen just after my early morning yoga/meditation practice, heating up some water for tea, when the sky lit up in a multitude of colors.  I stood and watched.  It was one of those times when I wanted to be in the moment rather than capture it (with the camera).

You’ll just have to take my word for it (regarding this morning’s sunrise).  Have you ever noticed that sunrises frequently have a similar look and coloring as the previous night’s sunset?

Today’s outdoor time was all about errands and chores.  The wind has been all bluster and noise for the past 24 hours, with gusts up to 45 mph.  A cold front is moving through this afternoon, and the temperature has been dropping.  We’ll go from 40s to the teens by tonight.

No music so far today.  I’m in the mood for silence.  I will pop in a CD later.  Something soothing, I think.  It’s not a day for harsh sounds.
