Sunday Reflections…

Did you see any shooting stars last night? Or early this morning? Guess what? We are in the peak of the Leonids Meteor Shower! 💥 Last night & luckily for you – Tonight, is the BEST time to see some! I read a bit about it to find out a few facts…

If your up, tonight is going to be the best night to see a “Shooting Star”! Between midnight and dawn is the best time… Good news, if you tough it out and see one, YOU get to make a wish 💫

The yearly ‘Leonids come from a Comet that orbits the sun every 33 years! The comets name is Temple/Tuttle. It won’t be back around to us until 2031… Pretty cool huh 😎

 

Leonids Over Us

“The sky is streaked with them
burning hole in black space —
like fireworks, someone says
all friendly in the dark chill
of Newcomb Hollow in November,
friends known only by voices.

We lie on the cold sand and it
embraces us, this beach
where locals never go in summer
and boast of their absence. Now
we lie eyes open to the flowers
of white ice that blaze over us

and seem to imprint directly
on our brains. I feel the earth,
rolling beneath as we face out
into the endlessness we usually
ignore. Past the evanescent
meteors, infinity pulls hard.”

~ Marge Piercy

 

Have a Great Sunday! And a great Sunday night viewing the Leonids! 💫

Sunday Reflections…

Tomorrow is Veterans Day, a special day where ALL men & women, soldiers & sailors who have served and are serving, are honored for their service. We had our parade yesterday in downtown Jackson & there will be more today and all day tomorrow!
Thank You! To all who have worked to keep our country strong and Free! God Bless America! 🇺🇸

A BIG Thank You and Salute to ALL the Veterans out there that make it happen on a daily basis!

“A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America’ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’ That Is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.”

~ Unknown

 

Have a great day! Thank a Veteran!

Sunday Reflections…

The leaves have been coming down like rain the last couple of days. It’s beautiful to watch. Add to that the 4 strait nights of freezing temps … November has made itself known 😊 Thanksgiving is coming!

Many trees are at peak color and the leaves are raining down when the wind blows…

 

“November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.”
    ~ Elizabeth Coatsworth
