Day 164: I have gratitude for the awe that comes when one catches a view of the huge expanse of nature. Working on the sprawl of an urban school for so long did not always permit seeing such unobstructed beauty. In our new city near my work parking lot, I so often see huge displays of beauty in creation –these clouds are no exception. The way they covered the sky and reached upwards reminded me of how vast the world is around us, and how even the most full lifetime would not be sufficient to explore and see all of it. This is good — we have no reason to lack awe when we merely look around (or above) us.
