Red sky

9 July 2019

I always leave home early morning so that I can see a sunrise. This red sky reminds me of my farm days in Western Australia, there is a story of Shepard that my host father told me at that time. When I found a red sky on farm, I took picture of it and showed it to him. Then he told me the meaning of the red sky for a Shepard. I worked with a thousand of sheep and learned mastering them which was really hard for me. And also I had an amazing coworker who is young and hardworking boy, he is a good Shepard. The red sky, Shepard story and the boy made my mind to become a good Shepard. Since then I haven’t seen a red sky, but here in Christchurch, I encountered it fortunately. It put smile on my face.
