Skywatch Friday: Almost There

From Topsail, April 2011

Breathing in, I know I am breathing in. Breathing out, I know I am breathing out. (Thich Nhat Hanh)

I love the color orange for the reasons stated in the photo.  I love the intense warmth and friendliness of the color.  It invites you in to enjoy yourself without expecting you to dress up for the event.  That, to my way of thinking, is delightful.  I am days away from a summer filled with this delight.  I can't take it in, though.  These last days of school are so intense and important that I can't think beyond them.  That's OK, though; dreams have a way of waiting--for a little bit.

    Once I learned, that 'breathing in' represents connection, while 'breathing out' speaks about 'to make things happening'.

    Please have a good Friday you all.

  19. Next year, this time, this will be me looking forward to the summer and back on the year behind me. I have a position in the fall. You give poetry to these moments in our lives and are able to connect all the dots so that we go from a sunset on a beach to our dreams of the future.

    I share your love for the orange colour, created by the sun and reflected either in the sea or sky.
    Stunning photography.
    Have a lovely weekend dear Sandy,

  23. Every hard working teacher needs a vacation to recharge the batteries. Come and see pics of the fires in AZ on my blog. My friends sent them to me. They are packing. The fires are just two miles from their home.
