One Crazy Sky
I'm reading The Body Has a Mind of Its Own by Sandra and Matthew Blakeslee, a mother/son team of science writers who specialize in brain sciences. The book, as it turns out, is a weird hybrid of self-help and armchair cutting edge science. Very odd. However there's so much interesting information about how neurologists are thinking about the brain these days, it's worth slogging through the psychobabble.
Reading about brain maps engages my highly suggestible nature; reality itself this week seems as plastic as gray matter. Wow.
As if to reflect this perception, the sky was crazy all afternoon with every version of cirrus cloud imaginable. I took dozens of pics as the sky continually shapeshifted. In these pics the showers of ice crystals are as visible as the nose on your face. No offense intended.
Winter is coming.
