Light

The afternoon sky above the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Below the dome is the place where Jesus was buried, according to tradition.
The first showers of last week are long gone. Israel is back to blue skies and T-shirt temperatures.

Last week 359 bloggers shared their part of the sky on the weekly SkyWatch Friday. Keep looking up!

I guess if it is said long enough people come to believe that is where Jesus was buried but do we really know?

Some say he survived the cross in a drugged state and traveled the world. I think I read a book about that once, years ago.

I believe the T-shirt weather as it has been Indian Summer over here but that is about to change soon.
