MIAMI, Florida (AP) — An enormous, hazy cloud of dust from the Sahara Desert is blowing toward the southern United States, but meteorologists do not expect much effect beyond colorful sunsets.
“This is not going to be a tremendous event, but it will be kind of interesting,” said Jim Lushine, a severe weather expert with the National Weather Service in Miami.

While scientists may consider this giant dust cloud to be of little effect — little more than simply interesting — think of the effect that such beautiful sunsets will have on the minds and spirits of sensitive people? Gifts of nature, like a beautiful sunset, the early morning rain, or a bright, full moon are often times enough to move me beyond feelings of hopeless surrender and into an energetic flow.
