Skies, Books, Tidbits, Shabbat 3/9/12

The photographs above were taken at an orange tree orchard. The contrast of the white architecture within the orchard and the sky background attracted me. One was taken on Monday, and one was taken on Wednesday.

Visit Skywatch Friday to see more skies from around the world.

Book News:
The Spinoza Problem, by Irvin D. Yalom, is a book I am definitely going to buy. It sounds like a fantastic and intriguing historical novel and read.
