I’ve talked about it before but two things really sold our house to us. We were thinking about starting a family. We wanted somewhere quiet with a bit of a garden. We looked at a few places and then we visited this little bungalow in a small village on a hill. The bungalow was a bit small and run down but then we looked out at the overgrown back garden. That view and that sky. There was nothing to block out the view of the clouds. It was a BIG SKY. That was it were were hooked.

It’s definitely still a BIG SKY.

It still kind of takes my breath away. I’ve always been a town and city person. Grow accustomed to buildings and trees blocking out large parts of the sky. At night the artificial lighting just drowning out what sky that is still there. That just doesn’t happen here.

A BIG SKY definitely deserves big dreams. I do need to start working on those. Sometimes it’s too easy to fall back on memories. It certainly is for me. Not today. I’m going to get wrapped up, brew a mug of something steaming and go outside. To look, to breathe and to dream. All thanks to a big sky.

  2. Hello! I remember you actively participating a blogathon some time during the pandemic lockdown… perhaps you’d be interested to join one of the blogathons for the Thanksgiving…

  3. I bought my house because of the huge trees on the property. I couldn’t be in a place without them. I had to have some cut down and limbs removed. About killed me to see them ‘maimed’…..

    Sending you hugs again today. Maybe not so much as you need them , but I do.

  4. The sky inspires me too. Most of my life my view was restricted but I always loved being somewhere where I could look up at a great expanse, especially at night. Coming back to NY really opened up my horizons and my heart fills every time I look out at them. Love your sky pics. My own are often similar. Maybe we are Sky People.
