Autumn Sky

The sky this evening turned a shade of blue that Mother Nature reserves for autumn. I'm not sure if it was the angle of light or some atmospheric anomaly, but the contrast of sunset painted clouds against an indigo sky was breathtaking....the stuff of Impressionist art.
If you took a pallet of watercolor paint, I'm not sure what colors you would mix to match the richness of the autumn sky.
I feel like I drifted through much of my life in a coma. I know there has been so much that I missed worrying about bills, deadlines, and other mundane stuff that in the long run did not matter.
I wish there were a class that you could take, or a book you could read when you are younger that could somehow teach you to take things in focus on the important things.
But I guess when I was younger, I would have scoffed at any such advice, because as everyone understands, when you're young, you know everything.
It took me years to understand just how smart my parents and grandparents were. They never had much schooling, but they were wise just the same.
Didn't mean to wax philosophical on you, but an autumn sky will do that for you.

  1. Philosophical waxing is an excellent pastime. :) I started reading your book aloud to Ornery last night. We had some good laughs. Thanks again for the gifts.
