"This pretty word describes fleeting moments of fading beauty. Normally used to depict the last couple of days of cherry blossom season, it also refers to that sad, bittersweet feeling when something is so good that you don't want it to finish. Like a tasty hamburger or excellent book."
Georgia Frances King, Frankie magazine July/Aug 2012
What a lovely word. When you read that, don't you just think, "yes, I know what that means"?
I often feel that way about a good book, I don't want to stop reading, but I don't want it to finish.
The same with pretty blooms. There's that bittersweet moment when they start to fade and you know you'll have to toss them out before long.
I think the sky is like that too. When you see that amazing sunrise or sunset, you know it's very temporary, it changes and fades in an instant. So here I share with you a morning sky that I snapped last week. So beautiful!
It's cold, rainy and windy here this morning, but then it is winter. I'm feeling a bit better but coughing like no-one's business. Bit over it!
Wishing you a happy week :)
