Blog Guelph: In Search of New Skylines by Aidan M.D. Ware

The sky is the subject of poetry, the stuff of movies, the landscape of painters, the backdrop to all human scenes: romance, sadness, fear, hope, peril, success, love, hate, gain, and loss. And I think about the sky a lot. I look at it a lot too. Sometimes it reflects back my emotions like a mirror. Other times, it's antagonizingly defiant and impervious to my small human drama.

Each sky is quite different, harbouring new frontiers of creativity and ingenuity. I like to think of it like nature's Jackson Pollock; Abstract Expressionism at its height (pun intended).

So, as the days are marching towards another cold and predominantly grey winter, I take today to appreciate some spectacular skylines.

Looking at the sky should inspire us all to remember our roles in the creative universe and to keep hope as we search for new skylines, connections, love, and opportunities with each day that passes on our journey.
