Check this out. This is what it looked like on the solstice yesterday. It's the kind of phenomenon similar to rainbows, sundogs and northern lights. We see it often in winter, this blue line along the horizon but I don't know if it has a name. It reminds me of Rob's favorite kids book "Harold and his purple crayon". Since we are in a crag, a deep valley, it feels like an odd pocket of energy and chemistry, while the sun dances on the periphery in bold blue skies high above us. We haven't seen the sun directly here in several days but no matter, this is a good time to snuggle up with a book on the couch or to get to those long forgotten creative projects.
