SKYWATCH FRIDAY - Indian Summer Skies Over Point Pelee
After my drive to the Point Pelee Tip got rained out (previous post) the weather shifted, and it got warmer and sunnier. So my neighbor and I took her two corgis on their tandem leash (is there anything cuter than fluffy little corgi bums scampering along side by side?) and headed to the Tip. Here are two views of the very southernmost land of Canada, one looking out into Lake Erie, and the other with my back to the lake, showing the divided water. And of course, a photo of Katie and Lizzie in their glory!

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.
