Strange sky...







 
... as seen from the yard later in the day.
 
Have never seen a prism in the clouds here before,
such as the one I saw today.

Summer Moon

 
This is what you see in the western sky when you fall asleep some time after 3 a.m., wake up sometime before 6 a.m., take the garbage to the curb, and decide to go for a walk because you are wide awake. (The sun hadn't yet risen above the mountains in the east.)

The pic below was taken nine days prior, in the western sky as the sun was making its descent towards the mountains in the west/northwest.

Rather interesting that it came up again and that I decided to post it... I just found out that he died 40 years ago, a week from today. The funny thing is that I had already chosen the title for this from something he said in the video, and was pondering how "zen" it seemed... I then remembered something I had written before and went searching for it... very interesting...

I've been waiting for this...

 
On the day of July 10, 2013, I had the lowest number of new visitors since perhaps the inception of this blog. Just one (1)... and it was someone in Serbia. I could be excited about an impending zero day, but that would just be sad.

If you cook an entire package of bacon at once, how can you not eat a piece? Can you stop at one?
