Time passes. We're all under the same sky. The skies in our state never cease to amaze me. They can be clear, cerulean blue, or full of dark, stormy clouds, or bright, fiery sunsets - I love them all. I've been enjoying the sky from my backyard these days and while it has been wonderful to have the option to do that, trees, houses, and power lines hinder my ability to convey through pictures the feeling of powerful expanse that I so love about our skies. Late at night, if I can't sleep, I search through my sky files and find my favorites from trips past. So many different skies. One image I was particularly drawn to had these tendrils of clouds reaching out like fingers over the foothills of the Manzanos. They look like waves stretching out overhead, and I imagine I'm underwater in an ancient sea, like the one that covered what is now New Mexico millions of years ago. Some nights I climb up on the roof. I've taken a new interest in star trail photography. The passage of time over my dwelling, our neighborhoods connected by giant circling stars. It's a powerful feeling of connection in a time of isolation. Some nights, the trails left by the stars look like a river, marking the passage of time over our heads. If I'm feeling down I think of the stars flowing over my head and how they join all of us together in our journey through this time. What things are you seeing in your sky today (or tonight)? I know we'll go out later and hunt for cloud dragons... and cloud elbows, because they're my not-so-baby's favorite. He calls them "elblows" and it makes me smile every time I hear it.
