I was up visiting at my sweetheart’s house as I often do, watching a little TV. It was nearly time to get back home to try to pound out another thousand words before bed so we went out to the barn to feed the horses. When we came out of the barn, the sky had done something I have never seen before.
At first my mind latched on to the rational explanation… Jets. But the straight lines of cloud were all over the sky, dozens of jets would have had to have crossed back and forth all at once… which seemed unlikely.
My darling ran and got her camera and I just stared, a little kid lost in the inscrutable heavens.
