Angel Skies

Hi! We've had a rather cool summer here at the beach. (I missed the July heat wave in the hospital). But the other day it was a grey and sultry and not so pretty kind of late summer day. Good for outdoor sewing because there is no shadow cast by one's hands. But not gorgeous. A little bleh?

Anyway, just at sunset, a cool front moved through, first clearing the heat haze and then generating a rolling mass of ocean fog.

The sky---and ocean!--- lit up! I hardly ever see a pink ocean.

We call a sunset like this an angel sky....

The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us,
and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us,
and we only know them when they are gone.

~George Eliot
I am striving to enjoy each day, to heal a little each day...to find pleasure in the small beauties again....
