SkyWatch ~ Sunrise for Train Ride


Last Friday I rose at dawn to catch the train to Melbourne
to spend 3 days with my sister in hospital. The morning
dawned beautifully,


the colours deepening and painting the sky


by the time they had fully coloured the sky, I was up and
ready to leave for the 8 1/2 hr train ride.



I am back now but in not too fit a state for blogging. Please
excuse it if I don't manage to visit your particular blog. I hope
the time will come again when I can engage fully again with
the blogging community.

Show the wonders of your skies and join SkyWatch!

  6. Dear Arija, I prayed for you and your sister this morning. You're a very special person to make such a long journey to be with her in her time of need. Just you rest and we'll still be here when you feel like reconnecting again. Blessings, Jo

  9. Take care, this is a stressful time.
    We had an amazing sunset last night due to the fires that were lit around us during the week.

  10. Arija, these images are so rich in depth of colour, as if they had been painted by Him, just for you, to give you peace as you traveled to visit your beloved sister. It cannot have been easy. Always so very difficult when our loved ones are ill, especially with what your sister is having to go through and you living so far from her. You are lifted up in my thoughts dear one~

  13. It has been very windy here in Ohio yesterday and today. It is also very wet and cold. The leaves are falling. The sky is a dark winter gray color. I can't seem to stay warm.

    Nothing here as pretty as your two photos.

    I enjoyed my visit to your blog.

  22. Unless I’ve misunderstood, I know what it’s like visiting sisters in hospitals. I’ve been through that. I am wishing good healthy outcomes to you and your family. Your dawn photos are lovely … although similar to sunsets, there is a cooler shade of red in the mornings.

  35. Arija -- my thoughts are with you as are virtual hugs. I expect that the sunrise was the good part of a sad day and I am sorry. I hope it is a sign of hope.

    (Do not feel guilty about not visiting our blogs -- you have other things to do now and we have all been there to some degree or other (or we will be) and we all understand.)
