We used to have a fabulous and wonderful Golden Retriever named Jake that always watched the sky. He would chase after airplanes as if he had a chance at catching them.
Carlos also watches the sky and tries to catch birds.
Do you look up? I think we all have a tendency to walk along, looking at the ground or our phones or the people around us. But how often do you look up?
Saturday night was a "Super Moon". It was enormous - I wish I had been at the beach to see it reflecting into the water. It was a perfect moon for the ocean.
My Super Moon photo which looks a lot like a regular moon photo.
It was very impressive in person.
Not so much in my photo.
Not stars but rain sprinkles.
Still looks like glitter.
I quickly learned when I started horseback riding that you must look up....look at where you want to go. If you look down, guess where you end up? The ground hurts when you fall from 6 feet up.
Bunny has her eyes focused beyond the jump- right where she wants to end up.
Look down, hit the ground.
A beautiful little bird in a perfect hole.
Every afternoon when I look at the camera on the Colorado cabin there is no sky. Seems the entire state is burning. Fortunately so far the area around us has been spared. That could change tonight. But the mountains are lost in smoke every afternoon from fires 100 miles away. There is no looking up there right now.
My morning view.
By 4pm there are no mountains- just smoke.
The downside to looking up? I run into things. I trip on curbs. I might be labeled a bit of a klutz.
But the view-I think it is worth it.
