    Sky

    I plan on doing this.  Looking and staring at the sky is another form of relaxation.  Since I have anxiety, doing this will help me.

    It's Like a Magical Canvas.

    At the breaking of dawn, it has that piercing, almost painfully electric blue color... throughout the day it changes, clouds shifting... at sunset any array of colors can splash themselves across the sky, smeared together like oil paint.  Then twilight, when things become...

    It Brings Me..........

    Peace. Wonderful, joyous peace. I can lay out on a blanket & stare at the sky for hours. I can lay there & for a little while, the problems fade away. I become weightless. Sitting up on those clouds & just being free. Of the memories, the pain, the fear. It gives me...
