My good friend Tammy flies in the clouds for a living, and I suspect this may be a common view. I think this image perfectly captures the fresh feeling of a new day, and touches an unreal, surreal landscape in the sky that is in fact, so, so real. (photo: Tammy Carrico Meigs)

Happy New Year y'all...



Coasting down the slope at the tail end of this year, wraps some things up in neat bows, and finds new boxes wide open. I like the idea of expanse --a never ending road, if you will. It's the feeling of a promise to a very interesting journey.
