Sky watching, literally

(Neptune Statue installation, Schönbrunn)

“Pay no attention to what the critics say. A statue has never been erected in honor of a critic.”
Jean Sibelius 

In silence I watch the sky, the clouds passing by. I never get the chance to speak to anyone yet here, I am happy just watching the wild blue yonder above.
