“Blue Skies, Shining at Me…”

Nothing but blue skies did I see today. Beginning a long hike with my dog this afternoon, I noticed a lonely wisp of a cloud:

and was reminded of that Wordsworth poem, which I looked up after getting back home. The poem seemed even more appropriate afterwards, as it matched the mood of my hike through quiet hills, parks, playground fields.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

A gorgeous Southern California day, perfect for wandering.

  1. I went wandering around the neighborhood where I grew up today. I really wanted to play on the swings at my former elementary school but all the gates were locked. I took some pictures of the skies too, but there were wispy clouds.

  2. I watched football all day in the dark of our new media room.. its beautiful EVERY day so whats the dif?

    It’s amusing to read this the day after it was posted, sitting here in the rain after being kept awake half the night by thunder and lightning. :-)

    (Of course, some of us think rain can be beautiful, too, so maybe it’s just a matter of perspective. :-)
