The clouds color the sunlight a deeper red than usual for those five minutes.
The clouds could be a metaphor for the winter-blues that have suddenly descended onto me. My training with the Duo has plateaued, and my spine is hurting. But, the good news is that the regimented sleep schedule has prevented migraines for a pretty long time. I guess I have cause to smile because those migraines were an awful and frequent plague over the past couple of years!
To tell the truth, writing my posts often helps me to see the glimmer of good in life even when my mood is blue. It helps me to be grateful for the gifts I've been given.
Another thing that made me smile is that I managed to access a couple of trail cameras that are in areas that now have very deep snow. They showed our yearling bull moose on a long walk in late November. Someone suggested that I should name him because he looks so distinctive. I thought that "Lefty" might be a good name, since his left antler is his good one.
When he passed the first camera, it caught his attention. He stopped to stare at the dim red glow coming from it. I'm glad he didn't decide to ram it with his antler!
Lefty didn't notice the next camera. He sniffed an area that bobcats and mountain lions mark. It's fascinating that the scent mark left by one species tends to interest all the other species as well. After sniffing for about 20 seconds, he went on his way.
Happy Tuesday to all of you! May the blues stay away from you!
