SkyWatch Friday: Special Delivery

My husband is a UPS man, and since our house is on his route he stops by on his afternoon break to change his socks, refill his water bottle, grab a freshly baked muffin, or whatever - and to say hi! :-) On Tuesday afternoon when I heard his truck pull up I opened the front door to greet him and saw this ominous but intriguing cloud across the way...


Clouds on clouds, in volumes driven...
~ Thomas Love Peacock~


Clear and cloudy, at sunrise and sunset, by sunlight and moonlight,
the magnificent skies of the world are just a click away at...

  6. I always enjoy seeing what Mother Nature does to the sky, always different.

  7. Jane ~ Not unlike the UPS man. :-)

    Barbara ~ I thought so too!

    Rose ~ It sure is, especially at this time of the year when I would hardly get to see him otherwise!

    Molly ~ I know, it was startling to open the door and see that, I thought we were in for it!

    Spud ~ "Holy smokes," lol (see Barbara's comment!) ;-) I'm glad too - at least, nothing came of it here!

    LindyLouMac ~ So do I. She's an artist of endless (sometimes quite wild) creativity who never sleeps!

SOME CURRENT & RECENT READING...

  • THE HUMANE GARDENER ~ Nancy Lawson
  • THE WORLD WITHOUT US ~ Alan Weisman
There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.

~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
