These clouds caught my fancy. Musical, a band playing in the sky....

"Happiness is spoken here"

This neighborhood market was owned and managed for many years by a lady named Margaret. A very independent spirit, she always spoke her mind. She often had banners and signs posted addressing the politicians and policies she disagreed with.

 She also had sandwich board signs set up out front with positive sayings to greet her customers.

A few weeks ago, the store went dark. A sign on the door said it was "closed due to illness".  And in today's news was a short article saying she'd passed away. She was 95.

The market is one of the very few neighborhood markets left in Boise. But with her passing, its future is uncertain. Will it continue as a neighborhood store? Will it transform into another kind of retail store? Will it be torn down and become an apartment complex or someone's house?

I didn't know Margaret, but I hope she is in a place where "happiness is spoken".

Red against green

As seen several hours after a storm.

Cutting edge?

Saw this scene of sunlight and shadows one recent morning during breakfast, and had to take a photo.
