But this too shall pass

Such stunning, glowing sky colours. Beautiful photos.
Sorry you had difficulty finding my blog post among all my blogs. That is why I use a direct link to the relevant post in the SWF meme. If you use the link there, there is no problem. Have a great weekend.

Bill said it looked like a tear in the sky. Could have been a scene from Jim Carrey' s The Truman Show. :)
