“The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), U.S. essayist, poet, philosopher. Journal entry, May 25, 1843. Journals (1909-1914).

TIME:  11:31 & 11:38 AM
PLACE:  Freeburg, IL
SUBJECTS:  Corner of building (101 S. Belleville St.) and trees in the park

HH and I drove to Freeburg, IL to eat at a Wurstmart (one of his favorite things to do).  It was a rare day in November - bright blue skies and warm winds.  The clouds were dancing and racing across the sky with the wind.  All I wanted to do was keep looking up and taking in all the beautiful blue color I could while we were outside.  Rain is in the forecast tomorrow…I've got to enjoy it while I can.
