Movie Night, Anyone?

"And it's nothing to go back 20 or 30 miles, to cross your T ..."
I can't recall the last time I saw anything written in the sky. Are we past this charming practice? I can think of many things I'd like to see writ large in the heavens, but most of them are personal. I suppose there's no signature, and afterward it just evaporates into nothing.

I'm also surprised this profession hasn't been mined by the movie industry -- doesn't Skywriter seem like a sexy profession for a leading man? In my screenplay, he will be brooding, but nice, and when asked by his sophisticated love interest what he does for a living, in shame he will say "Writer." Hilarity and confusion will ensue from this small lie, and it will only be revealed that he is a Skywriter when he decides to declare his feelings across the sky! Applause!

What would you like to see written in the sky?

"Keep calm and carry on."

Kidding, I swear I'm kidding.

I would, however, give my full endorsement to any kind of first clue in a treasure hunt, especially if the clues were fiendishly difficult and the prize unimaginably wonderful.

How's this for a first clue:

"To take my work seriously would be the height of folly. Find me at the medicine chest of the soul."

Where, do you think, would an intrepid skyward-facing soul look first?

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
