michigan from way up there

the waxing moon enabled this unique VIIRS view of the great lakes last night.

note the moon glint below lake-effect clouds over lake superior.

“a sky as pure as water bathed the stars and brought them out.”

crisp.

Standard

as our temps take a dip into the zero-ish range,

it is good to remember the importance of connection,

the joy of giving to others, and the comfort of the sun.

“it is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake,

the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.

this crisp winter air is full of it.”

~john burroughs, “Winter Sunshine”
