Phoenix Rising




Chinese mythology, as well as the Chinese lunar calendar, makes much of dragons. I often wonder how this came about. Every few years, I see cloud formations that look dragon-like, that I think might help explain things. This time, there were three clouds all coming up from the west one afternoon, and they really did look like a big phoenix rising up from the setting sun. I don't know how easy it is to see this from the photos, but the street I was at had so many overhead telephone and power lines I couldn't get an unobstructed view.
