The Deep Purple

 We went up on the hill this evening because it looked like there may be a pretty sunset. There wasn't, but there were still lovely sights. The sky turned a deep purple, with pink vapor trails.






Venus came out.

We passed the angels on the way home. It was twilight and their candles were lit.



“When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to flicker in the sky
Through the mist of a memory you wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh.”

TODD RUNDGREN, ROGER POWELL, KASIM SULTON, JOHN WILCOX

I love those angels - and I love the sky - I wonder why the different colors show up?

What a pretty purple sky. And the angels lit up are so special. You know, PUPRLE is my favorite color! It's mysterious and lovely and somewhat regal.
