What A Splendid Day

Ah the weather today was simply amazing. :-)  The sky was littered with clouds that were pregnant with rain yet still allowing sufficient sunlight through to create the incredible effect that it did today.  I love days like this because the colors are so rich and deep.  On really sunny days everything is so bright and surfacy, but on days like this, the colors run rich and deep with impressive hue.  The sky itself was suffused with deep colors.

Sadly, no camera made could do justice to what the eye beheld today.  The greens were dark and rich, the yellows bright but deep, the reds were robust and bold, and the blues, well the blues were engulfing and captivating.  The white rocks on the peaks and sides of the mountains were not just white but rather shades of being, creating a dancing life that no canvas or instrument of man could replicate.

Yes, today was an absolutely beautiful day.  I’m just glad I took the time to notice, though it wasn’t hard to do.  It was as if life itself stopped for a day to play in the joy of what creation was meant to be.  The peace and rest that it imparted to me and my spirit was something that almost could be breathed in.  I’m so glad God created with us in mind, I think He really did do quite a splendid job. :-)  Of course I think my opinion matters little to that which He said Himself, … and it was good.  Yes God, I have to agree.

As an added treat to the beauty of the day, Seoul was actually without the smoggy haze that is in constant state.  One could actually see for quite the distance in any given direction.  What a rare occurrence that is, especially these days with the yellow dust bombarding us from China.  What a splendid day in deed.

Me :-)

"no camera made could..."

Ah, I see you haven't tried the Canon SLR series with CMOS sensors and DIGIC II inside.


Glad to see you back - and I enjoyed your prose... you captured the wonder of the scene quite effectively.

I love spring.

very nice....however, I'm thinking that maybe you should stop reading the thesaurus in your 'free time'...!

:-P For your information I didn't even use a thesaurus except to find out how to spell hue. I have a well endowed vocabulary thank you very much. Now if I could only spell I might actually be dangerous.

Yes, I looked up “hue” after finding out how to spell it (silly people, you can't hardly find words in a dictionary if you don't know how to spell them and a thesaurus has the word in question listed with a whack of other words so it's much easier to find and besides, I had already tried the dictionary several times to no avail, but I said a small admition and this is getting out of hand so back to business) to make sure that I was using it correctly and found the word “suffuse” listed in it's definition. What a great word, “suffuse”. My mind is suffuse with thoughts sleep. It's midnight and I just got home.

Ok, so a camera couldn't do it justice, but you are just teasing us with this description and no pictures to give us even a glimpse of it's beauty! Come on! Share more than your vocabulary! :-)

I had to look up a dictionary to find what "hue" meant but now I don't feel as bad, by reading these comments. :) eiko
