Majestic Mount Hood

Mount Hood in Oregon

Snow capped giant

Rises before me, I gaze

In awestruck wonder

Once more, Mount Hood, the sight of you has taken my breath away. Though miles away from me you loom in front of me like a blockade. Clouds hover above your snow capped peak. I gasp. You are intimidating, yet so beautiful.

I remember when I visited you and stood at your base, smelled your mountain air, and trembled at your majesty.

None other I have seen strike me with awe like you do giant rock.

Prussian Blue

A human error

A timely happenstance

Created a masterpiece

The Accidental Creation of Prussian Blue Pigment

(Image is “Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh painted using the color Prussian Blue)

I recently read an article stating how the beautiful color of Prussian Blue was created. This beautiful color was the result of an accident! A great reminder that sometimes mistakes we make can be for good.
