I imagine that inside that jet it is noisy, hectic and fast.
But from my perspective, down on earth, I experience silence and the slow, graceful formation of tightly formed lines and arcs that gradually defuse and become wider and fuzzier.
So it is me and the pilot, both with different perspectives, experiencing the same thing in very different ways. It makes me realize that what I see and feel is not necessarily the same as others around me. And when I understand this, it helps me accept those who's perspective is different than my own.

Apparently this tree had some major pruning. Perhaps storm damage, or lightning, or some other tragedy… and the tree surgeons had to chop the top off. But persistence and determination seem to have prevailed.
I guess loosing your head is no reason to give up. It may not be pretty, but life goes on. And new growth is possible.

But wait... what's that? A black cloud?
It tells of a change in the weather. An end to pleasant outdoor enjoyment. A storm approaching. Better run for cover.
Well on this day the storm never came. The breeze overcame the foreshadowed rain and sent the black cloud away. Sunshine won out and the day remained beautiful.
So it goes to show you, bad signs do not necessarily mean bad times.

Yes, the symbol favored by pirates and troubled youth that dress only in black is made cute with the addition of a bow. The old skull and bones.
I found this pasted on the back of a SUV in the mall parking lot.
It is interesting to see the sky and clouds in the window reflection... and there is my camera, also in reflection.
