Today was all about 'sky', wasn't it? Here on the south coast we had sun, hail, snow........sun, hail mixed with snow.........sun, etc. etc. And the clouds were spectacular. Late this afternoon, with the sun dipping lower by the minute, there were some fantastic sights with those big thunder-bumpers and the light rimming the edges. Just beautiful! Everytime I turned away and thought I had enough photos, I made the mistake of re-looking and it was even MORE back I went with camera again. This happened a number of times until I forced myself to stop and answer the phone which was ringing. It's going to be interesting to see what Mother Nature leaves us overnight. The snow level is supposed to get down to 1,000 feet and we sometimes get some that might stick........I know everyone doesn't feel the same, but I get sooo excited about snow. I've never lived in a place where there's been much more than maybe about 6" and it never lasts too long. Without the hardship that I know it can cause, it's just beautiful and a lot of fun to me. (Sorry, all those who have moved here from the colder states)
Again thoughts about the turning of the New Year........the continuity of life and death and the Great Mystery of it husband's sister, Lucy, passed over just after Christmas. She was his last sibling and since I still have my two sisters, I can't imagine how painful that loss might be. Lucy was a beautiful and wonderful lady.......she was in Billy Rose's Aquacades of 1939 at Treasure Island in San Francisco along with Johnny Weissmueller and a "new" Esther Williams, whom Lucy remained good friends with all those years. And she was as beautiful inside as out..... the world is a little lonelier for a good many of folks now. On the other side of this evolving life, one of Norm's favorite young nieces just became a grandma for the first time. A new great-nephew has joined the human race.......full of potential and hopes for the future of the world. And if this little one can contribute even half the grace and goodness as his great-aunt, whom he won't get to meet, well the world just might be OK after all. We can hope.
Hope everyone has a great Thursday........have you made your New Year's resolutions yet?? Times getting closer so think up some good ones!!
