After being stuck inside for a few mornings, Maddie was ready to walk. We weren’t sure the rain had ended, but it wasn’t raining when we normally leave, so off we went. During the course of our walk, the sky became redder and redder. I started thinking about the old adage. I began to wonder it there was any truth to it (old adages / wives’ tales are often based in fact).
Those of you that know me from Monday morning posts will appreciate how excited I got when I saw a great explanation of sun angles, dust and moisture particles, and wavelengths – wavelengths, I tell ya!
I also discovered references to the connection between red morning skies and foul weather in the Bible.
But this is One-Liner Wednesday. I decided to ignore the science, leave God out of the discussion and go with Shakespeare. I also decided that I need to violate Linda’s rule about one line. in his play, “Venus and Adonis,” Shakespeare wrote:
“Like a red morn that ever yet betokened, Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field, Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds, Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.”William Shakespeare
Maddie, I think we need to head home.
