today: sky friday.
the news about the missing plane, and that it might have been shot down, i heard it while driving through a forest yesterday evening. such a terrible tragedy. and to think, to plan and pack for a journey, to leave, and then to lose your life on the way - and probably by mistake. and then there is Israel and Gaza. and so many small tragedies that happen without ever reaching the news. but then, there are also so many beautiful and inspiring stories - which don't make the news, either. today i am glad for the garden here, the colors it offers, the daylilies in bloom. and for skywatch friday, with its positive vibe around the world.
