Morning Thanks

Garrison Keillor once said we'd all be better off if we all started the day by giving thanks for just one thing. I'll try.

Saturday Morning Catch


It's been a long time since I was out on a Saturday. The world here at the edge of the Great Plains is splendidly emerald after more rain than we sinners deserve. But the big story this morning was the sky--weathermen call it "partly cloud," and it was. But "partly cloudy" can be drop dead gorgeous. When the sky's the story, the best shots are landscapes, big ones, lens stuck way down. You can't have too much wide-angle, really. On those mornings the sky steals your attention, any land-locked feature has to be incredibly fulsome to compete with its immensity.

They preach, you know--the heavens do. So saith the psalmist, and who am I to question?
