the sly day shifted about

This is my favorite sentence that I read today:  “From all sides, the sly day shifted about; and the mistral shook the sky like sheet metal.”  (from “The Serpent of Stars”).  Jean Giono is always very poetic in his novels, and “The Joy of Man’s Desiring” was a great read as well.  “The Serpent of Stars” is a slim yet square little book, perfect to take on a plane this week.
