Sky Like an Easter Egg

Saturday, April 11, 2009

On a recent airplane flight, I looked out my window and saw this. It was dusk on a winter day and we were flying over the ocean. The sky was an amazing spectrum of colors from salmon pink to pale indigo. I snapped a photo out the airplane window with my pocket camera. The colors in the image reminded me of an Easter egg, so I saved the photo to share with you on this holiday weekend.

I'm thinking back to dyeing Easter eggs as a kid—the small cups with the color tablets fizzing in vinegar, the little wire egg holders, the quest for the deepest, most perfectly colored eggs. I think I liked coloring the eggs more than the ensuing egg hunt. And I am still on a quest for deep and perfect color.

Wishing you a happy holiday weekend.

And didn't you just hate seeing them get cracked and peeling them to find green egg white...blech.
