The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Lake Michigan Sunrise Feb 20 2015

What a wonderful sunrise this morning!  I was in awe of the streaky, wispy clouds that seemed to hover above Lake Michigan this morning.  The sun began to rise, and the pattern of criss-cross clouds appeared above.  It almost seemed as if the clouds were trying to replicate their version of a spotlight at some fancy premiere.  You know what I mean; the spotlights that compete for, well, the spotlight! *grin*  I think of the old days of Hollywood when a movie premiere forced a couple of spotlight operators to flood the night’s sky with beams of light which only seemed to detract from the main event, not necessarily highlighting it.

How can you tell I think a lot about these clouds? You may also notice the lake has a rather dulled sheen to it; there is some ice on the surface, but it’s not frozen by any means.

I hope you have a magical Friday!

        That´s what it most counts, having fun, with whatever a person does. The day I stop having fun writing then I stop, but I doubt that day will come. You are a good photographer, I´m actually getting to have a pretty good eye with photography after following so many photographers here in wordpress. Would like to tackle it someday, and make a living out of writing and photography. A loooong shot, but dreams are free( unlike a goo camera) so I´ll keep dreaming.

        You know, you are right about having fun. Awh, thank you so much! I say to you, why not? There is no reason you couldn’t do your writing and photography professionally! I think anyone with a dream such as yours is always a wonderful starting place, don’t you? Cher xo

        Well there is that dream to hold on to that maybe just maybe one day I can earn a living out of it. But the worst thing I can do is stress myself over it, and also be realistic about it. So yeah, having fun with this ride.

        Keep visualizing as if it already existed; that’s the stuff dreams and made of! You are right; the worst thing to do is stress over it. Timing is everything; keep moving forward and as you said, have fun with the ride! Cher xo

      Thank you, Hilary! I thought so too. It was as if brush strokes by an unseen painted created it for that fleeting moment, and I snapped the photo! Cher xo
