Conjunction & my job


My job took me out of town for a couple nights. Had some windshield time and was lucky enough to be driving south while the conjunction of the Moon, Jupiter and Venus was dancing before my very eyes. I'm not an astronomy genius but I do follow it loosely and knew this night would be great as long as the cloud cover doesn't kill it. It didn't. I studied it and memorized as much as I could. Then I thought about how it compares/contrasts with my job at hand and my career. One thing you CAN do while driving is think. Even if it's useless babble about astronomy and your place in life. I checked into the motel and sketched and finished it that night.

Makes me wonder what Van Gogh might have thought of, too. This coloring is excellent and the whole spread with writing is an 'experience' for sure

Veru cool sketch, and such a neat event to capture - you saw the same angle I did!

I am glad I clicked on this and read your introspection. All so true and really puts things in true perspective.
