Goal for the Day: Look to the Sky

We look at the horizon, we are aware of our surroundings, we look at the buildings that line our streets, we see the faces of the people we meet, but  how often do we look to the sky?  Even though we’re all covered by the same sky, it looks different in each region, each country.  When I was a young teenager and we moved to Texas, I was immediately struck at how different the sky looked compared to the other places we had lived.  This overwhelmingly huge blue dome seemed so monumental.  To this day, I still find myself gazing at the sky, marveling at the change of colors, the patterns of the clouds and the clarity (or lack thereof).  Today (not while you’re driving), take a few minutes to enjoy the sky-scape above you.  You’ll find the drama and enormity of it to be quite humbling and exciting.
