Cloud Jumper

I assure you I don't deliberately sit around noting clouds. In fact, my eyes are usually so far in front of me onto the next task, I rarely look up to differentiate them. But today, as Miss S and I walked out the front door on our way to the library, we both couldn't help but notice.

These clouds were so vivid and so immediate, they seemed to be jumping out of the sky towards us, invading our reality. So intensely surreal, they were almost too real. So close you could get up and jump on them. Gloriously springy gobs of puff so 3D, they were 4D! Not way up in the sky but right there, over the rooftops, an arms length away.

"Wow. Look at the clouds Mom," she said reading my mind.

"I know!" I said running back in to get my camera....

Boing! Boing! Boing!

And all blue above that.

We noticed them, too, in Berkeley today. Cool.

Gorgeous pictures.

Like CWL says, it's good to look up. It's good to appreciate the beauty around you.

I like your cloud studies... how many people walk around looking at the pavement in front of them and don't see what is all about them, and above them! It reminds me of the English painter John Constable who lived in the countryside and painted all kinds of cloud formations.
