Earring 0045 - Little Bit of Heaven
Will have more tonight on this. Wanted to make sure that I could have the photo in when I write.
These earrings are so heavenly that I can see the skies in them. I love clouds. When we were kids, mom would always be pointing to the clouds and saying "do you see..." We saw that and much more. Kind of like if you look at the earring on the left towards the bottom, there are two volcanos erupting and below you can see the ocean waves hitting against the volcanoes. Above are the clouds with maybe rain showers that you can see streaming down. And above those, you can see the expanse beyond our atmosphere.
I still look at the clouds and see many things that most people wouldn't see or even take the time to see. "Clouds in My Coffee" was sung by Carly Simon. It sure brings back memories of my past marriage. I used to sing it at the top of my lungs so many times while I was driving. Sang it while I was dating, sang it while I was married, sang it while we were separated, and sang it after we got divorced. Can't sing it anymore because the words won't come out, just tears. Tomorrow, I will look at the clouds and put that song away; don't need tears now because it's like crying over spilt milk.
That brings back memories too. How many times did my sister and I get yelled at for spilling milk! Can't tell you which of the two of us spilled more milk! I could not resist the following joke from http://www.simplybovine.com/cow_jokes.html
