Cathedrals

"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral." Antoine de Saint ExupĂ©ry  (author of the Little Prince)

Bit like Sky Watching,  in our busy hurry scurry lives it is easy to overlook all the beautiful things that are going on around us. Check the link to see what hundreds of bloggers from all over the world have found in their patch of the sky this week.  And much thanks to our hosts of Sky Watch Friday and Dot for starting the sky watch party.
