This sunset inspired me to contemplate on our small stance in such a large place as Creation. For music to go with it I would choose the final movement of Camille Saint-Saens' Symphony No. 3 (Organ Symphony). In fact, what are you doing for the next five and a half minutes? Here's an excerpt from YouTube; be sure to turn your speakers way up! You can watch the clouds over the lake (or out your own window) and let yourself fly.
Thanks to contributor Elaine for her inspiring photo and words for this week. For more beautiful sky shots, visit the Skywatch site.
The Cloud Messenger (Meghadūta) is a lyric poem by the respected Indian poet, Kālidāsa. The poem centers around a yaksa in exile. Longing for his beloved, waiting for him on a Himalayan mountain, he asks a cloud to take a message to her. The sights he tells the cloud it will see on its way make up most of the poem.
The idea of recording observations appeals to me. I thought The Cloud Messenger was the perfect title for a blog about the journey that we all make as we move through our days.
I'm a baby boomer who grew up dancing in the streets of Detroit during the classic Motown years, lived beside the Rocky Mountains for many years, now retired and living (and writing full time) in S. Ontario. I have one blog for rock 'n' roll oldies, and one for nature, poetry and life along the Lake.
