Once again, it’s time to share with the world an image or two of the sky.
Please join me at http://www.skyley.blogspot.com “Skywatch Friday” to view many more beautiful skies photos.
The everexpanding tree contrasts to the sinking fence, a growing family vs the letting go of life, a mirror on life. July 22, 2011“i thank god for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees & for the blue dreams of sky & for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”

While this past weekend was filled with a birthday party and visiting the family, Monday was a day to focus on Patriotic explorations.
First we took a drive to Princeton, to take part in the celebration at the Historic Morven house and museum and gardens. A July 4th Jubilee Celebration was taking place on the grounds. Volunteers
were milling about in period costumes. You could run into “George Washington” and have a chat , and “Molly Pitcher”. There were display tents set up representing Early Domestic arts including leaf print making, 18th century games, 18th century ice cream making, and spices of the same period- we used our olfactory sense to sample mace, and other unheard of spices in today’s times.
Everyone could hold a feather pen and “sign the Declaration of Independence; not the real one, of course.
Inside the Morven house, we went to the second floor to explore the current exhibit called “the Stars and Stripes, Fabric of the American Spirit” . This was from the Pearce collection of the American Parade Flags. There was a time when our ancestors used to write on our American flag. Here, you could trace the history of our national emblem from it’s beginnings in 1777 into the twentieth century.
