"Cloud Bursting"

It's my favorite travel passtime to look at the passing clouds and visualize what it looks like... It will be quiet interesting, the same cloud that looks like a turtle to me would very clearly be a beaver to my husband. If he sees a lady I would see a rabbit!

In my native tongue we have a saying, "If you find a rock you won't see the dog; if you see a dog you won't find a rock" ("Kallai kandal naayei kaanom; naayei kandal kallai kaanom") It could have other meanings but to me it makes perfect sense to my cloud visualizations.

There is never a dull moment in our long distance travels as we look at the clouds most of the time. It could be an array of cotton balls or chefs hats or chubby babies or fluffy pillows or a flock of sheep or whatever it looks like to you...

It would look like an elephant from a distance but as you get closer it could take shape as a dinosaur or two swans or whatever else you shape it up to be...

Sometimes we get to enjoy picture perfect - painting like illustrations by Artist Almighty from our backyard. He uses the trees nearby and the hills far off to make it breathtakingly beautiful! It is amazing with extra color and light effects, nothing can beat that!! It always reminds me of the scripture, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."

In my eyes a cloud is never simply a cloud, there's a whole new world out there... Would you like to join me for "Cloud bursting" sometime?

Very poetic and imaginative. I'd try this with my son coz he's very imaginative and this would be a great way to continue cheerful conversations with him, thanks for sharing.
