I can see sunrises from my kitchen window but on most days I wish my view was not obstructed by houses, trees, and power poles. I am tempted some morning to get in my car at 5:30 or so and drive somewhere to catch one as pretty as this. To see more skies around the world, check out Skywatch Friday.
A picture of my husbands Italian mother Mary. Born in 1916, she couldn't have been over a few years old in this shot. I love the details of her attire, such as necklaces, earrings, and tiny ring on her finger. She looks like a little doll to me. Sadly, she died when he was 12 so I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her.
