SkyWatch Friday: Glad to be a morning person!
September already? Busy days lately, many that began with equally busy skies enlivened by charismatic clouds. I hope you enjoy these early morning overhead offerings!
A couple of sunrises from last week...
(I call this one "Battlestar Gallactica Cloud!")
The still unsettled (but still lovely) early morning skies over our campsite following a night of wild thunderstorms and rain...
Just when I thought it was turning into a sunny day, the clouds said, "Not so fast, sister!"...
And finally these photos, taken about 2½ minutes apart, of the breathtaking sunrise that greeted us on Labor Day and got September off to a beautiful start…
I definitely live in a place where it's great to be a morning person. :-)
Happy weekend and happy SkyWatching!

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"
