Splashes of red-yellow could be seen in all directions across the sky-dome. In the south was a huge reddish plume as if coming from a fire filling an expanse between elongated clouds of dark gray-blue. More splotches of riimy red-yellow could be seen in the west and in the north. Looking east through stark fingers of tree limbs, the reds and blues inter- mingled with the red increasing in den- sity announcing the rising of the sun. Winter stillness prevailed. Nodrum beats. No strident sounds of brass. Beauty grew without accompaniment. Quiet, soul-renewing moments for those seizing that moment.
