Catching a glimpse of the clouds out of the corner of my eye, I quickly grabbed my phone to take a couple of photos. The Arctic looking scene was mesmerising. Within moments it was replaced by the Pacific Ocean.
I find aeroplane windows a challenge when taking pictures towards the sun; smears and reflections being the case in point. Thankfully no condensation or ice, this time.
A pattern covered skull shape hovers in the distance. Storm clouds roll towards the viewer.

This is an enhanced picture of the horizon above the clouds at sunset. I rotated it 90o to the right and added a twirl filter in ArtStudio for iPad. Today Australia celebrates the Queen’s birthday with a public holiday (except Western Australia).

Call me a traditionalist, I find this roof a more unsettling than the darkening clouds.
Forgotten photo I.D. in Sydney;
Misplaced memory triggered to dawn.

Forgotten party tickets in Melbourne.
Emotions: panic; anger; disbelief.
Denominators: time; cabs; cash; relief.
I collected the cord from paper carrier and gift bags for a few years. As the collection grew larger and the cords got tangled up I extracted the ones made from natural fibre and discarded the rest. I never knew why I was collecting them, only that one day I would need them. I have been introduced to the world of knots by my dear friend Sue Vincent.
I was amazed to find that there is a language of knots. So if you’re at a loose end and fancy learning the difference between the ascending end, bight, clockwise loop and a pentaradial I suggest checking out the step by step guides available on YouTube. If you prefer an illustrated book I suggest Decorative Fusion Knots. To whet your appetite, section one is available to download in PDF at Decorative Fusion Knots.
The above is my first attempt at a double coin knot and a cloud knot.
