Grey Skies: Recalling Blue

The skies have turned that prolonged color of grey. Shades of grey, day after day. I will be alright for awhile longer, but by February or March, I will crave blue, warmth, sunshine, dryness. In the meantime, I will look at photos that recall blue skies.

Photography & Colors: Red Sky…………..

Red sky smoke TM

“At sunrise or sunset, sunlight takes a much longer path through the atmosphere than during the middle part of the day. Because an increased amount of violet and blue light is scattered out of the beam along the way, the light which reaches an observer early or late in the day is reddened. Thus, it could be said that sunsets are red because the daytime sky is blue. This notion is perhaps best illustrated by example: a beam of sunlight that at a given moment produces a red sunset over the Appalachians is at the same time contributing to the deep blue of a late afternoon sky over the Rockies.” (NOAA)


Such Subject Matter: Safety & Survival

I just chuckled to myself as I looked at my recent topics: two headed fish, spider bites and a swollen toe, a fish hook in the lip. I do attempt to occasionally mention safety, survival topics but usually not so many in a row. As I watched the news this morning…I usually only watch it for the weather…I was once again struck by the negative impact of drownings, shootings, accidents, disasters and politics….I certainly don’t want to add to that downer fog that often besets us. So things are looking up and I will indeed look past the weeds toward that blue sky. I will disperse my safety topics and provide more positivity.

Let’s see. I need to spread out yellow jackets, poison oak, rattlesnakes, heat stroke, sunscreens, mosquito borne diseases, ticks & lyme disease, tsunami debris, footwear, safe food storage, safe gassing lawn mowers, …………………….

Count your blessings, instead of your troubles. You attract more blessings by acknowledging the ones you already have, no matter how small they may seem.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
