This is one of those posts where I have images, but no words of my own to go with them. Sometimes they turn out to be pretty decent posts. Other times, not so much. We’ll just have to wait and see where it goes.

Yesterday’s sky was so pretty that I set aside a few shots for today’s post. The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Sky. It’s been a few weeks since I participated in a WordPress photo challenge.

Try to be mindful, and let things take their natural course. Then your mind will become still in any surroundings, like a clear forest pool. All kinds of wonderful, rare animals will come to drink at the pool, and you will clearly see the nature of all things. You will see many strange and wonderful things come and go, but you will be still.

If the summer days to come are all like today, I think I could easily fall in love with summer. We’re not officially into summer yet, but even with today’s mild temperatures, it looks and feels like summer, especially around the pond.

We should be in New Jersey by the time this posts. Hopefully it was an uneventful trip through the mountains and farmlands of Pennsylvania, and we’ve been having a great time at my sister’s house, visiting with her family and my father.
Any successful journey begins by packing your luggage full of imagination.

The Big Wind brought us a few gifts. Some, like the big red ball, are whimsical and fun. Others will require some clean-up.
