Then looking up, I was excited to see this atmospheric gift from the sky:

Now as the winds from approaching Hurricane Sandy are picking up, I wonder what other gifts from the sky might be on their way. And I'm reminded that Hurricane was one of the creative gods or forces of the Mayan Creation story in the Popol Vuh. Powerful and destructive, but an important player in the creation of our world.
Hurricane approaches. Hopefully bearing Sooty Terns, frigatebirds, and other tropical gifts.
