Hmmm, what are they trying to say up there?
It looks like a new language. I'm trying to squint, see if I can't decipher the code. My brain is scrambling to find the right files. Ugh, you know by now, an artist has all these questions that no one has an answer for. It starts when you are five (all children are artists!!) when you ask, "Why is the grass green? Why is the sky blue? Why do caterpillars have fuzzy hair? Why does water make you clean? Why do I have to eat broccoli?"
The plot thickens, and so do the clouds!
but I don't mind when the sun breaks through...
Symbolically we could use a little of that.
Yesterday to my consternation, I saw on Dick"s "other" blog "tent city." I missed the TV episode on Oprah of it (sometimes she has good human interest stories:) ). If you missed it too, tent city is in the capitol of California, mind you, the richest, but most expensive state in the USA.
Tent city is getting bigger and consists of people who have lost their jobs a few months ago, and lost their house, and now they live in a tent to weather this storm in their life. You can see on the tents that these are not poor people. They have nice stuff in their tents. Stuff you would see in a house. Another indication that these are a different kind of homeless is that the people are well dressed and trying to be cheerful.
or, suddenly I come upon a rainbow. They're always cool to see, even if I'm not in the days of Noah. Not???
Once I saw two rainbows at the same time, but couldn't take a pic because I was driving, and close to a busy intersection.
Or see pink puffy clouds on my walk through the neighborhood...
All these pics are taken when I'm seeing some cool clouds, and I don't care if my dinner is burning on the stove, but I first need to take these pics! Or, we are on the road, and about every mile the skies keep changing.
Right now there are smoke clouds in the neighborhood of Santa Barbara. Yesterday (Thursday), so reported hubby, there are 30 thousand mandatory evacuated, because there was a hot wind blowing 50 miles an hour.
Today, Friday, there are another 23 thousand on standby for evacuation, and 80 houses destroyed. How is it possible, a blazing fire in May! Believe it or not, on Thurs. it was 81 degrees in my house (approx. 4 pm). It's two hours on the freeway away from me, so don't worry I am safe!
But what I love to see the most is a stormy sky sunset. It gives closure to a day, even when you are driving along the road. That's why I don't like overcast days - they seem to me without beginning or end. I am fortunate that we don't have many of those in California.
