Clear blue sky and a camera

If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds,  I would pick more daisies.

Over the last few years, I've that found looking into a blue sky is the surest way to help lift my mood if I'm feeling low.  

The last few days have been gorgeous and have been heaven for me - the same day to day niggles still crop up, I still worry about my teenage son and his exams, work carries on with all the little petty annoyances that can arise when you're working closely with other people - but being able to look out and see blue skies, or go out with my camera and be under the blue sky means that none of those things weigh heavily on me .  I feel that I can face anything, go anywhere, do anything!  

Here are a couple of  pictures I took in the garden today, while making the most of the weather.

And to finish as I started, with bright blue sky

Of course reality and cloudy weather reassert themselves, but the memories of blue skies and photographs that I 've taken can be almost as good, until the next blue sky appears, and my energy levels, enthusiasm and enjoyment of everything around me surge again.
