The sky, pale blue, lingered, hovering like a proud mama in the background, while her child performed some little accomplishment.  So this is what I shall attempt to do, record my thoughts; my letters, if you will; about all of the little things, little things that I see, things that strike a cord in my soul, that mark a  moment of happiness, a moment of sadness, joy or frustration.
