More Munch Moments (sort of)

Watching the sunset from Mugu Rock looking towards Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands, the sky reminded me of the sky in Edvard Munch's Scream. Nice to know that life on the beach in SoCal is much mellower than that portrayed in the painting. Our sky did have something in common with Munch's Oslo sky yesterday - particulates caused the unnatural light. Oslo that year had ash from Krakatoa's eruption; Ventura County had ash from a Santa Paula controlled burn. In spite of wanting to scream about our current leadership in the White House and all the harm it has done to our country and planet, I have to say that life in my corner of the world is much, much brighter than an existential painting will ever be!
