Life above the clouds

Living at 8200 feet has both challenges and charms. This may be the ultimate test of are you a “glass half full” or “glass half empty” person. It’s a choice we can all make.

When you have a day where it’s cloudy and gray at 5300 feet (I know that sounds like high altitude to my sea level friends) but it’s bluebird sky beautiful and sunny above, you are reminded of how full the glass really is.

It may look like snow in these pictures but it is only the clouds, keeping the sun from shining at lower elevations.

Moon Musings

Tonight’s full moon made its appearance bathed in clouds. Each month, as the full moon rises, I’m drawn to the beauty and light. Far from the city and it’s inherent light pollution, I’m able to appreciate the magic of moonlight and the reflections created.

What songs about the moon inspire you? My two favorites are: Van Morrison’s “Moondance” and King Harvest’s “Dancing in the Moonlight” – if you need me, I’ll be dancing.
