signs of love
(click for illustration)

Surprisingly, today at 2:30pm I took a walk outside and saw a skywriter. Of course I didn't manage to see completely what it had written in the sky, but I do recall seeing a happy face (smiley face) and a heart symbol. The heart shape was obviously the first glyph the plane had obviously etched out against the bue sky. It was slightly faded so I'm not 100% sure that it was a symbol of love. The smiley face was more obvious, but then I saw that the plane had made an attempt to divide (separate) the two shapes with a 'V', or a an upside down European #1.

If you've been to Europe, maybe you've noticed the funny ways the store fronts label the prices on their merchandise. It's almost hard to tell whether they want $27 for something, or $21 for it because their ones look like the shape of an A without the cross hash.

I guess today's skywriter was simply practising his writing skills. I enjoyed watching the sky and trying to make sense of the smiley loves who? riddle. I always think of the song Yellow Butterfly by the Scorpions because the last album I bought was Eye to eye and in that CD there's a song with lyrics containing the word skywriter. I think that may even be the title of the song [Skywriter] but I'm not sure.

I had the same experience when I visited Germany many years ago. Why Germans and Frenchmen reserve such similarities in their numbers probably has to do with compensating for their vast differences in language. BTW, thanks for replying. It's good to see my blog is still visible to my friends!
