Change 1

hills

2009. Like most people, I can't believe it. Change seems to come faster and faster, one year blurring into the next.

Up here in Xieng Khouang, there's always change in the wind. We say that there are three seasons during the day - the mornings are often misty or drizzly, the afternoons warm up and the nights are freezing. There's often a strong wind during the cold season that makes the clouds race over the landscape.

I took this picture while I was walking this afternoon. I had to walk fast because it was so cold but decided to climb a nearby hill. The sight of the clouds and hills glowing in the sunset was exciting.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. This photo is very interesting to me. The hills look VERY much like the soft, old hills in Northern California where I used to live. The city of Santa Rosa, about an hour north of San Francisco, might look just like this. Amazing!

What a beautiful expression, that your day has three seasons.

Here in the Southwest USA our days do that as well. We've learned to layer our clothing, with hats and jackets in the morning hours, T-shirts at noon, and sweaters later in the day!
