A warm and happy Sunday to you all. I am posting this late the night before, as I always do, and an idea hit me. Some time Sunday morning go outside..... you don't have to go more that just outside your door, but you can go around your house, apartment, or wherever you'd like... and take a good look around. What do you see that you find wondrous or marvelous that you would love to tell us about
Since it's night time and mighty dark outside I thought I'd wait til I got up in the morning, but ya know...I'm going outside right now before I go to bed. Besides, many of you may get UP in the morning when it's still dark and might have similar experiences. Be right back.... <talk among yourselves if you like>
(nice music playing in the background)
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr....It's wow-dark out there and I LOVE it! When I sat down at the computer I was exhausted, hurried and harried! Bad combination. But I stepped outside, turned off any lights that hindered my view and just stood there in the dark. I closed my eyes for a few seconds so my eyes would adjust and when I
opened them I was able to see the dim light that was there...and the dimness got more and more easier to see. I could see a couple of small blooms of white nicotiana flowers. They bloom at night and are extremely fragrant then also but in the dark they were almost glowing. Then I looked up expecting to see stars since today was a nice day but I was pleased to see that a marine layer had moved in and occluded the stars. That means that it won't get miserably hot today like it had been last week.
But the most awesome sight was when I looked straight up, the sky did have some lightness to it. Looking around the perimeter of the sky all I can see are the silhouettes are enormous, pointy-topped trees that tower above the skyline. They leave a jagged black edge to an incredible, blue-black sky. The trees at night give me a safe feeling as if they are guarding our home from all of the business and worries of life. When I came back in to tell you about
it I was surprised how much better I feel and I was excited to share.
So, when you stepped outside what marvelous things do you want to share with everyone about
what you saw?
Chutzie...who's ready for a peaceful night...
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
