The Litchfield Hills....and gray skies
The Litchfield hills are notoriously pretty in any time of the year. We have had very warm, overcast days which make the colors stand out vividly against the gray skies.
It was a very busy weekend and I was lucky to get theses photos when I could.
And speaking of gray skies, in the past week, I know more than a dozen people who have lost their jobs, and/or their health benefits. We lost our dental insurance last week but close friends lost their jobs as well. We are not far behind.
It is getting increasingly difficult to stay creative and positive in the unraveling of the economy. I send a shout out to everyone in the same boat. I find myself weepy lately. Even a trip to the grocery store will yield a sad story concerning employment or health care loss. Stores are closing everywhere. One of the big box chains my friend works for is going out business today. Not the store....the whole chain. She worked there 18 years.
Until next time, enjoy the day to the best of your ability. If you see one beautiful thing and give and/or receive one act of kindness, I think your day will be fine!
