Musing the Heavens is a reflection on the shapes that clouds make and what it could mean. Enjoy, and thanks for visiting.
I have the privilege of spending time on the water as the boat steerer (coxswain) for my rowing team. My primary plain of vision, because I’m steering the boat, is water and sky. Water, for the need to see what’s around and ahead as we row and sky for changes in weather.
I took this photo a year or so ago during one of our early morning rows in New Bedford Harbor. The hole in the clouds had me musing the heavens and wondering if someone was headed to heaven… or getting kicked out! Then I thought, what if God had made an opening to better keep an eye on things and look in on how we, as a people, were doing?
Within minutes the hole disappeared. I’ve never seen anything like it since. And I wonder if that is a good thing or not?
