I think I've used that earworm for a title before, no doubt because it fits my life so well. Inspiring sunrises, sunset-reflecting eastern clouds, a son growing – rapidly and rockily (is that word?) – before my eyes; yes, this is a period "laden with happiness and tears." Yesterday was more tears than happiness – the easier to let him go when the time comes, right? ;-)
Given the time and energy required to pilot these waters, showing you pretty pictures is about all I can muster. I hope to tell more about my dad's surprise visit, but may only get as far as covering the "dressage show chapter" of the story over on my Dances With Horses blog. For now, you get a rainbow and almost sunset clouds from yesterday, and this morning's sunrise progression (before it fogged up, and eventually started raining), all SOOC.
That's it for now from . . .
