|An old photo found last year|
Not oddly enough, it is also my friend Robin's birthday. Being friends since our early teens and having the not so normal of families each, we have done a lot of laughing together. Crying too but the laughter is always better. She and Sarah have an affinity that crosses miles and years and it was Robin who kept these old photos. I'm so glad!

|This version, taken by Sylvia Nieves, was, in my opinion, the best the bunch.|
She's very good.
These clouds contain millions of tiny ice crystals. The halos you see are caused by both , or splitting of light, and also by , or glints of light from these ice crystals. The crystals have to be oriented and positioned just so with respect to your eye, in order for the halo to appear.
Ok, that's just very cool, the personal part. I knew about the ice crystals, but what is really obvious was not apparent to me until I read that.
While that phenomenon usually indicates a weather event, like rain, I was surprised when, after the sky darkening with clouds, I only noted a very brief shower sometime in the early a.m. Unless I missed it, doing something silly like sleeping.
Here's to unique events! Including the births of my daughter and my dearest friend on the same day.
Have moments of magical on your Monday. Do something memorable.
