Last night I was enthralled as the clouds flowed like pink feathers across the skies. First a dragon, then a woman riding a swan. I saw so many beautious things. This morning I painted a cloud painting from one of the exquisite faces I caught with my camera.

Below is the original cloud as I saw it.

DADDY UPDATE: Dad is still doing well, but is now having some severe panic attacks where he is afraid and thinks he is going to die. It is worse in the evening and at night. Mom thinks it is something called Sundowner's Syndrome. These frightening attacks seem to have their roots in memories from his time in WW2 when he was a prisoner of war in Nazi Germany. It may be a result of his meds, they will re-evaluate this today and hopefully he will not have these fearful moments. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.

Hi Beth:

It's nice to be able to visit this way. I am praying for your Dad and Mom. Both my parents are gone and I still miss them. Most of my memories of them are ones where they are either laughing or smiling. They both had a great sense of humor. I'm glad that you do too. That is a gift from God for sure.
Love ya,

Beth, the picture is beautiful. I'm so sad about your dad's nightmares. I hope it is the meds they have him on and will give him new medication. As always you have my support :)

Oh Beth, I'm so sorry to hear about your parents accident. How lucky they were, that it wasn't worse. I hope your poor Dad soon feels a little less panicky. I'm quite certain they were being watched over and I hope they can find a measure of peace. I'll be thinking of you all

I know of Sundowner's Syndrome. It just might be. I hope it dissipates. It might just be the shock and stress of it all, too. Understandably. I'm glad he gets better every day. That is the thing to focus on.

Those clouds speak fire to me. They flicker.

It's amazing how Light plays with us and gives hope in these glorious clouds. Showing you yet another, watching over you and your family. You catch these angels so magicly with your camera and your art.
Trauma, medications, stress, changes in environment can all bring on the sundowners syndrom... With what you've shared, he has all of the above. Know he is being wathced over by a multitude of angels as many prayers go up for you and your family. May God Bless you and send you and your family His Healing Grace and Love. Love and Light, Nina P
