"I am a being of Heaven and Earth..."

I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning, of rain and wind, of the galaxies. - Eden Ahbez 

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.  - Rabindranath Tagore 

Evening Falls

From behind a wall of clouds 
A glimpse of sky escapes

Nature's spark is captured
for one brief moment

All I have to do is look at the sky to realize my own insignificance. 
What am I to clouds that billow and storms that rage?
I am but a speck, a passing shadow.

...and the floods came up...

Just thought I'd share a few photos of our namesake - the Green River. Needless to say, it's been a bit dicey for those along the river and the old river bed.

 Notice the lightpost and the fence, not to mention the plant life that is barely visible.

The view across to the other back of the river. When the river is low, you can see a huge sandbar in the middle with trees and plants.

Notice the huge tree against one of the bridge supports. The next time I saw this view there was probably double that amount of debris against that support and almost as much by the other support I could see. Then I watched an entire tree float under the bridge! Wild stuff!

This is where the water was at on the steps behind a restaurant on the banks of the river. There are usually a couple more steps visible. When the river is at it's lowest, you have to walk a little bit beyond the steps to get to the river's edge. Not so, here.
View from the other side of the bridge. This is a support that is about 5 feet away from a walkway below the bridge that leads from one side of the road to the other. You can see that the water is not far from where I was standing. Trust me - that is unusual!

On the other hand... it made for a spectacular sunset!

Our awesome custodian is taking on doing a painting project at our school. I think that it is looking pretty good so far. Thanks, Mr. B.!
