Brooklyn Sunset...

I was walking home from just having gotten off from work when I saw this amazing sunset. The phenomenal thing is that it was only part of the sky. It seems as though only certain clouds reacted to the fading light, making only those particular formations look like some kind of heavenly liquid fire blazing across the sky. The sunset over Brooklyn was breathtaking.

I love the picture of this sunset. Gorgeous.
I keep checking to see if you have posted any of your jewelry designs. It's been a reeeaally long time since you have.
*sigh*

Hey Lorelei! Fear not. I'm working hard on jewelry stuff as much as I can. I'm working on projects for an up-coming jewelry book... so I haven't been posting much of what I have been working on, alas.

Lorelei said...

Oooooo a new book! Fantastic! I am looking forward to seeing it.

I'll be happy when it's finally out. But it won't be for a LONG while. So... we'll see what I can pull together in the meantime.

I've been looking at the sky picture and it is pretty cool. But I used to have really bad panic issues about the end of the world and I remember waking up from a nap to a sky like this and thinking that indeed, the time had come. Even though I know it's perfectly harmless (in that, let's not think about pollution sort of way) it still makes me think of that orange sky where I thought that the world was finally about to be done.

Thanks Jean!

I don't mind the idea of the end of the world. It's such a strange concept, but even stranger yet to kind of accept. I sort of think that this construct was built in from early childhood through my mother. The idea of the end of the world is very real there. And I suppose in a lot of ways, it is. Like, if a horrible storm struck the island where much of my distant family lived... well... it'd be bad times indeed and potentially a very real end of the world.
