“A pessimist only sees the dark side of the clouds, and mopes;
a philosopher sees both sides and shrugs;
an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all–
he’s walking on them.” ~ Levinson
Last weekend I was able to get outside and enjoy some beautiful spring weather as we worked on a home-improvement project. I couldn’t help but snap a few photos of the lovely blue skies and white, puffy clouds that graced the sky that morning. (Yes, I had my small camera in my pocket…I told you I was a photo freak!) As I was scrolling through and editing my photos from the weekend it dawned on me how many times I had taken photos of the clouds in the sky. The more dramatic skies appealed to my shutter-bug nature, of course, but even the clear blue spring day pictured above was enough to pause me in my tracks. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites with you today…along with a few quotes about clouds as well.
“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ~ Tagore
“Revelations are found in clouds” ~ King
“There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.” ~ Chesterton
“You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.” ~ Thoreau
I know they say “keep your chin up” but be sure to keep your eyes up too, you never know what you just might see.
