Sky Red in the Morning

The other day when I was leaving for work, I was gifted with the most beautiful, breathtaking sight. The sky was red with a gorgeous sunrise. It was so incredible, I had to just stop for a moment and absorb its beauty. Unfortunately, I couldn't spend much more than a minute in appreciation because I had to get to work. But on my way, I took some backward glances when I was stopped at red lights.

The old saying, "Sky red at night, sailor's delight; sky red at morning, sailor's warning" came to mind. How could anything so beautiful and peaceful be a warning? So I looked it up online. I won't go into all the details, but suffice it to say, this particular old saying doesn't hold up in all circumstances. It was specific to mid latitudes, and even then there were exceptions.

So, I can feel free to just admire and appreciate the absolute beauty of a red sunrise. Besides... I'm not a sailor.

Love, Paula
