Clouds...

This morning the clouds were so amazing!  Big dark ominous clouds covering much of the northern part of the sky. But as I look south there is an amazingly beautiful blue sky behind the clouds with the Sun shining brightly outlining the edges of those dark ominous clouds... WOW!  did i have a camera? nope!  it is sitting on my kitchen table with a full card... 

note to self:   Art Never Sleeps!

Not trash for a moment at least...

Yesterday when i was driving into work the wind was blowing crazily.  i noticed ahead of me some sparkling something blowing across the highway. as i got closer i could see that a bundle of newspaper inserts had apparently fallen from a vehicle and landed in the middle of the opposite side of the highway. the wind was grabbing pages of the glossy paper and blowing them across the highway. many different colors of paper blowing like a small storm across C470, the sunlight complementing each piece as it was tumbled by the wind.  Now i KNOW once it landed on the side of the hill, on the hogback, it would just be trash that some nice volunteer would pick up to put in an orange trash bag to be left on the side of the highway to be picked up by the trash man.  But for those few moments it was not trash, but a living piece of beautiful art made only for those lucky few who might have the eyes to see it. I felt lucky to have those eyes that saw art not trash in that moment....
