Solar enamor

The earth was so
enamored with the sun
that it emblazoned itself
in shades of goldenrod

  1. Okay, now I’m positive that you have a full-time painter on that ladder painting the clouds is the sky. We never see clouds like this in Chicago. Keep in mind that we can rarely even SEE the sky in Chicago. LOL

    • Yes, too much steel and glass blocking the horizon line! LOL Actually, Chicago is one of the greenest cities I’ve lived. Of course, when I moved to Portland, Oregon, they set the bar high for environmental awareness. I know what you mean though. It’s funny that the Windy City can’t blow out the smog and filth. When I spent the summer in Lockport, a suburb of Chicago, it was usually blue skies and sunny (though not many clouds); however, the pollen and humidity reeked havoc on my allergies and sweat glands. The clouds in Corvallis, Oregon are naturally sculpted creatures of beauty. No coastal winds to erase their message. I’ve only lived here 3 months and have seen a wider diversity of cumulus confetti than my 26 years spent living under Montana’s Big Sky. Simply sublime! Hope you have a great day, my friend 🙂

    i agree with hitandrun1964. seems like the sky does not exist here in Chi-town.

    • See my reply to hitandrun1964. There must be a sky in the summertime. I seem to remember a clearer ceiling when I lived in Lockport. Maybe it’s different when you live inside the city? Well, you’ll just have to put a premium on sunny days free of smog and haze! Enjoy it whenever you can, my friend 🙂

    • Thank you! Your kind words are much appreciated. You have such a beautiful and inspiring blog! Also, you are one of a handful of bloggers who are practically my neighbors living in Corvallis! I too love volunteer opportunities and know that the Benton SWCD is having a scotch broom pull on Wednesday, June 19th from 10 to 1 at Finley Wildlife Refuge. I am also a member of the Corvallis Audubon Society and have been helping them control infestations of False Brome and Yellow Archangel along the trails at their Nature Center. Between here, Finely and Baskett Slough, there are so many wide open spaces to explore and inspire my pen and camera lens. Hope you have a relaxing weekend, my friend. The forecast is clear skies and sunny, can’t ask for anything more 🙂
      Cheers,

    It’s another beautiful, sun-scorched day in Corvallis, and as much as these humid, hot temperatures get under my skin, I count my blessings everyday the sun shows its face again…
