Having driven around in a circle through the countryside, we set course for home avoiding further scenic detours.
Clouds were boiling on the horizon
Cresting the hill and rolling down into the valley
I couldn’t decide which view I liked best
Maybe I am guilty of slight overkill?
But when I see skies like this, I expect to hear drum rolls and choirs of angels.
Most of my life, I never got excited about anything. A defense mechanism against disappointment. But excitement and enthusiasm are important, maybe even essential to our existence.
When I came to live in the country, I found sources of excitement that were not dependent on other people or empty promises.
Nature never disappoints.
