The day before the midterm elections feels stressful. I feel like I can’t turn the TV on, can’t check social media. Too much conflict, too much negativity.
On my way home from an early morning run to the grocery I noticed dramatic clouds. And me with no camera.
I hurried home, but the drama was gone by the time I unloaded and put away the groceries.
Still, the sky was interesting. And I was restless.
So off I went, camera in my lap, to see what I might see. Sure it would never be the extraordinary sky I saw earlier. But you never know what you’ll find.
At first I was disappointed, mostly muddy grey skies, not the dramatic navy blue ribbons I’d seen before.
But when I got out of the car on a dirt road to grab a shot of a barn I saw the whole sky above me and actually said out loud – “Wow!”
And that inspired me to keep looking. And you know me…
…looking for barns amid wild skies makes me smile.
What made you smile lately?
