Sky Watch Friday!

always looking up
We love to look up. Sure, there are many wonders down here, some natural and some crafted by the hands of men, but there is still something that draws our eyes to the sky. We can go on making improvements to terra firma, but what could possibly be added to the splendor of the skyscapes? They change continually. Sometimes clouds, sometimes birds, sometimes rainbows, and sometimes just a simple blue background. Please, I don't say this to take anything away from the things down here... just that the sky is forever touching my soul as if for the first time.

I share your sentiments about sky touching your soul as if for the first time. That happens to me a lot when I look up.

The top of that building makes for a very interesting view of the sky. Love your Ch-ch-ch-changes photo and words as well. We are so very lucky to live where we get such variety with our seasons and beauty.
