Clouds are for sharing


Last week, the day before a storm blew through Downey, I spied these clouds overhead. They remind me of waves at the beach. It's amazing how a clump of water vapor, which is at the mercy of the wind, air pressure, and air temperature, can be such a topic of conversation.

Do you remember lying on your back, looking up at the sky and asking each other, "What does that one look like to you?" A rabbit, a ship, an alligator, a bear?

Look at the clouds today. What memories do they conjure up for you?

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
~ John Lubbock, The Use Of Life
