I was reading Kathy's blog Material Obsessions and she has this amazing picture of a red morning sky.
We had a normal morning sky here is Brisbane over 1,000 km north of Kathy, but then a westerly wind began to blow bringing the red dust of the desert with it. Kathy said that the cars were coated with dust down there, but now at midday, everything in my house has a thick layer of dust over it and I have kept all the doors and windows closed. I wondered why I was coughing and sneezing. Every breath tastes of dust.
Then at times it lifts slightly only to descend and smother everything again. The houses on the other side of the river looks ghost like and colours are changed. Especially the colour green, mauve and bright red have become nothing colours but the greens are quite different.
I kept seeing a blue strobe light reflected in windows and any kind of reflective surface. Then I realised that it was the sun. I'm not sure if I hate this light or am fascinated by it. A bit of both I guess.
