It's All About Me!

Musings by Donna #66 Paradise Went Gray

Gray rainy sky th



Paradise went gray. It looks like a New Jersey day. The sky is thick with clouds – dark ones. Instead of oaks, maples, and evergreens, palm trees enthusiastically wave as though greeting long lost friends. The yellow flower-clad branches of the palo verdePalm Trees Blowing th trees sweep the sky trying to rid it of those pesky clouds. It’s working. Patches of blue peak through, making way for the sun to follow.

For now, the grayness is welcome – if only for an hour, maybe a day. The newness, the respite from the constant blue sky is refreshing. Tomorrow though I want the sun back. But for today, I’ll enjoy the grayness through my wall-to-wall window with streaming hot coffee in my favorite blue cup. Ich liebe es!

  1. A nice respite from the constant blue skies. I love a good desert storm–they come only once in a while.
