Skywatch Friday from Roanoke, Virginia

We'd never know how high we are,
till we are called to rise;
and then, if we are true to plan,
our statures touch the sky-
Emily Dickenson

Great picture, the cloud seems even higher than the moon. I read the story of first settlers from England at Roanoke, amazing and sad read.
