Sky in Geulah

It’s the bluest sky I’d ever seen. The color is sharp, crisp, and clear. Not Marine Blue, Baby Blue, Powder Blue, and not even Sky Blue.

This blue is different. I saw beyond the clouds. I felt a deep inner happiness surrounded by the white wispy clouds, winter-ish sun, and that vibrant sky.

The sun and sky guided my walks throughout Jerusalem. Some days I walked distances and climbed steps. Other days, I walked the city streets grocery shopping and gift selecting. And I marveled at the blue – Jerusalem Blue.

I miss it!
