After Spring's Big Bang
The sky has been absolutely wild the last few days. Bumpy, heavy overcasts, fleecy angel wings, screaming blue yonder, wisps like gauze covering the highest portions of the atmosphere, soft cumulous clouds and lots of contrails. We've seen every variety of sky lately - sometimes within the span of a couple of hours.
Can you hear that BOING sound? Yeah, that one. That 'sound' is a signal, to me at least, that the initial upwards surge of spring energy has shifted (as it does every year) to a spiraling, unfolding cacophony of expanding life force.
Naturally, the dome of the sky reflects what's going on at ground level with its constantly shifting dance.
Summer and winter hold steady in a consistent way both on the land and in the air. Of course the sky shifts around, of course, but not the way it does during spring and fall. Especially during spring, every day the landscape has transformed itself. It's crazy! Makes me crazy.
Makes me crazier, should say. Happy mid-spring!
