Sweet parting by Juliet Batten | 9, Jan, 2012 | Uncategorized | 8 comments The holiday is over, and I have returned. But I’m remembering the blazing skies of my last night at the bach. The rain clouds, that never departed, did scatter a little that evening, and there were just enough of them to create more magical skies. Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.Rabindranath Tagore 8 Comments lifeonthecutoff on 09/01/2012 at 22:39 Your pictures are breathtaking, Juliet. A sweet goodbye, and I do love that quote, which is now going into my quote book. This is such a lovely way to say farewell to your time at the bach. Reply Elisabeth on 10/01/2012 at 00:56 Great skies, great sunsets, a prelude to better tomorrows. Reply juliet on 10/01/2012 at 03:11 Penny, thank you for your kind comments. It’s a lovely quote isn’t it?Elisabeth, I love that thought: ‘a prelude to better tomorrows’. Thank you.

A wonderful gift of adieu.A friend of mine wondered if bush fire smoke from Australia was influencing the sunsets in NZ at the moment. Reply juliet on 11/01/2012 at 04:16 Oh Lynley, I hope not. I thought it was a result of the rainy weather, as the skies have been amazing since mid December. Reply Lynley on 11/01/2012 at 06:25 I also hope the stunning sunsets are caused by the tropically induced weather here and not bush fires. Your photos are amazing:-) Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
