I live in the United States, In the State of Indiana. I live in the Northern/North Western part of the state. We are about 50 miles from Lake Michigan.
In my part of the state we have a saying...If you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes , it will change!!! Our close proximity to the Great Lake makes our weather odd and quirky and just plain strange! We have fabulous scenery whether it is Winter with the ice sparkling on the trees or in the summer with the heat shimmering on the pavements.
I could go on and on about the weather in our area, how everything is tied to it. We live in a very rural and farm filled area and the weather rules!!!
But wrapped in and around and through all of the what if's of the weather is the Amazing Beauty and the wonderful Majesty of all the weather in all of it's moods. this mood is well...moody and got kind of threatening.
Life emulates the weather, with our capricious moods and our pouts and tantrums, our hot headed temper and icy implacability. And just like the weather, we sprout sunshine in our smiles and our optimism and our heartfelt happiness
Well I did finally figure it out, got them uploaded here and proceeded to lose 2 of them. Luckily, this one is the most important. the left side [in the picture] is moody and grey and not very optimistic, but from that comes all of the brilliance of a rainbow! The clouds are still there but the color really pops because of them. This is the whole meaning of optimism, your rainbow in spite of and along of the clouds!!! Thanks for being here and part of my rainbow!!! Have a Blessed Day!!!
YAY!!! I found and reuploaded [is that a word?] the two pictures that I had lost yesterday! These show all of the beauty of the Moody Hand Crafted Lampwork bead and the burst of color for the rainbow. There are a couple of wonderful lampwork beauties in here too[the really bright blue tube you can see in the last picture]! I am so glad I found these! Have a Blessed Day!
