Blue and Gold

We all live under the same sky, but we don’t all have the same horizon. 

A shot of the sky from last week, just after a heavy downpour. It was close to sunset and the sky had turned into a pretty picture of grey and gold. A few mindful minutes did magic to my soul. I watched the changing colours and grabbed this shot on my phone just before stepping out for the evening. By the time I was back, it was pitch dark but I was glad that inspite of so much going on in my life right now, I had taken a few minutes to appreciate nature and soak in the sights. There are days when life looks bleak but thankfully, some days, hope fills in, to bring in that much-needed respite from the grey overbearing heaviness that has come to be a part of my living moments.

‘This too shall pass’— I chant this to myself every day and find myself looking forward to a time when the fog will lift and things will begin to clear up and light and happiness will fill our lives again. In the meantime, life goes on..

    I have always loved your Skywatch series- the beautiful photographs and the words. “This too shall pass” – a mantra that helps us hang in there, have hope and live on.
