Crystalline Sky

The sky here in the winter is the one thing I love about freezing my ass off here in DC in November through early March. Leaving the poker game, up $75, at just about quarter to one in the morning, I was greeted with such a lovely sky, that it made me forget the fact that it was only 29 degrees outside. Orion ascendant to the South, the blood red dot of Mars in the eastern sky, Procyon twinkling like a sapphire on a field of blue.

The whole thing looked so perfect, like an artist’s rendering, set in crystal above me.

As we left work last night for happy, the pale blue remnants of the day were settling in, chasing the orange out over Treasury across Freedom Plaza from us. The sky over the Reagan Center was that perfect fall mix of azure and turquoise.

Winter sky.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
