the practice

Curious about the process? So are we! From time to time, we’ll offer some thoughts, notes or musings about the skies and our daily practice of attending to them here. The dates of these posts correspond to the date of the sky written of, and will link you to the original photo/poem. Enjoy!

Today is a good example of how often our posts are synchronous, as if we had chosen the images together based on certain criteria.  It’s always a delight when this happens: a similarity of tone, subject matter, shapes, composition, color or some other aspect. In this pairing, I’m struck at first by the trees on the right edge of the frame, by the similarity of scale and tone, but then…even more mysterious is the way the poems themselves seem cut from the same cloth.

Inspired by the news that scientists have discovered proof that the big bang started it all, and by all they mean all of it, us, this.

Today, we each feature a house (or house-like structure) and a palette of orange, pink, blue and yellow.  One with an ocean, the other with an ocean of sky.  Oh, and let’s not forget about the tree challenge.

Some days it feels like inspiration is around every corner, like you’re tripping over all the ideas for possible ways in. After  more than two months, we have each hit days where we wonder if there are any words left, anything new in the sky. Times like these call for a challenge!  After noticing a string of days where trees were featured in my skies, Kathy offered me the challenge: 5 days of no trees…OR…the next 5 days must feature a tree.  Spoiler alert: I chose trees. 🙂
