This was taken from my backyard on Valentine evening in 2006. I loved the cloud formations and the silhouetted trees. I am in a dark place right now with family health issues. My daughter-in-law had a massive stroke and intracranial bleed in the Andes Mountains in Ecuador, while getting out in AirAmbulane the plane caught fire and had to emergency land in Panama. Problems continued and last night she was pronounced brain dead but Panamanian law prevents turning off her ventilator. My son is beside himself with grief and still trapped in a 3rd world country and there is not much I can do either. Will post as I can.
