Stillness [Sky-Watch Friday]

@ mirandablue
 Health, contentment and trust
Are your greatest possessions,
 And freedom your greatest joy. 
 Look within.     
 Be still.  
     
~ Buddha


Tropical storm Juaning (international name:  Nock-Ten) left a trail of devastation as it ravaged the Bicol region, central Luzon and the northern provinces.  35 lives were lost and millions of pesos worth of crops and infrastructures were destroyed.

oh dear, I don't like such devastation from storms. there are so many areas of our planet now suffering from drought and heat, and this excess rain. if only it could be more evenly distributed. your photos are so very lovely. and the quotes are perfect. keepers.

That is truly calm after a storm...a stunning sunset. It is always stunning and painful to see that nature can cause such beauty and such devastation at the same time.
