Thanks for the links, and that spectacular, almost unreal, photograph!

P.S. I tried to leave a comment on your Poetry Friday post about the Narnia series, but it said that "Comments were closed." :(

Hey, Sara. Isn't that photo awesome? I could not believe that it's in the public domain, but it was taken by an Air Force person for work.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Poetry Friday post! I will check it out. Typepad, the blog host, changed its software a bit this week, and I have not completely gotten the hang of it yet.
