And Above Us Only Sky
I have a great love for the sky. Especially on the days when I feel so very low to the earth, I dream of flight. I dream of being a bird and swimming through clouds. In the last four months, as my family moved through my partner's battle with cancer, I found myself often drawn in gratitude for the sky. Admiring the vastness and freedom of it all. Looking into the clouds is like opening the Bible or tarot cards and divining the meaning we need in that moment. This allows me to make space for wonder and miraculousness and awe. I am also pulled to repeat Ani DiFranco's words, "Cuz humility has buoyancy, and above us only sky." Here are some photographs I've captured while falling more deeply in love with our sky. What a blessing it is to dare to dream of flight when we are often firmly bound to our roots. Blessings abound.
