It really got me to thinking about what's important in life (and what isn't) - and the thing I don't do often enough is stop and smell the roses. Or in my case, watch the sky. I love watching the clouds form and move, and the sun and moon rise and set. It's one of the things I don't love about this new house - you can't see the sky from inside. Our living area was at 5m above ground level in our old house and there were so many windows - where other people had artwork on the walls, we had curtain-free windows and the sky. I'm going to make more of a conscious effort to take five minutes out of every day, and just watch the sky.
How do you like these photos - taken just now. I call this "back to school" sky - because when school goes back in January - we have hot, humid weather with intermittent heavy showers. The one up the top is facing east and the one below is facing west. Even just turning 180 degrees, its a whole different sky.
