the flash, the breath and the shadow What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. ~Crowfoot (Sauvie's Island at sunset. The sky really was this color... I also managed to get a picture of the St. John's Bridge on the same night with similar clouds... that will be posted in due time.)
