July 5, 1944
for clouds see 1920 - Sunflowers at Noon -

N.B. Horses seem to spoil the mood -

A shaft of light from above catches the tree in its path - smokey shadow shafts on each side, (very subtle?)
The downpouring of noon - make it dramatic, powerful
The eternal noon of childhood - vapors of the damp June steamy meadows rising to meet it -
(1) - Buttercups like fire flies -
