6:45 am, Polt Mountain, New Jersey…. morning sky looking 150 degrees SouthEast and looking 290 degrees NorthWest…

Morning Sky 150 degrees SouthEast

The crack of dawn erupted into kaleidoscope vision of oranges, pinks, turquoise and violets.

Turning my head in the opposite direct, the colors of the sky were muted, almost hazy.

Morning Sky 290 degrees NorthWest

Painting my daily weather journal is a constant reminder to look in all directions, not just the world as it appears in front of me.  Had I faced only NorthWest, I would have missed the drama that was in motion behind me.
