August Happiness Challenge ~ August 4



This is one of my favourite kinds of skies - blue, blue blue and filled with enough gorgeous white clouds to make it interesting. When I was a girl I created a game called "Lightness, Darkness" (Remember, Suzie?) You could only play this game on a day that had clouds and a good strong wind. You know, the kind of day when the earth in front of you is sometimes light and sometimes has the shadow of a cloud skitting by. When you were in light you could move around freely. And when in shadow, you became a shadow, waiting for the sun's rays to hit you next. It was like you were playing tag with the sky.

I remember! I remember! That was the coolest game you created Jamie and the neighbourhood kids were addicted to it, all running around and freezing into place. What an impact you had on our little town.

Etha, Maggie, and I lay on the groud and look at the sky. Maggie doesn't last long, but Ethan is good at finding shapes in the sky.
I hadn't heard about the challenge; thanks for the link!
