I was going to call this article “Appreciating the Clouds”, because:
- I do appreciate them.
- I went for a walk in the small woods nearby which — to a city-dweller like me — is considered a hike, and found a spot overlooking the city that opened to a wonderful view of the sky.
- I sat at this spot that seemed like a nature created throne, and sketched the clouds.
As I sat there in these unlikely woods in the middle of the big city, it seemed as if no one else existed, and I was filled with gratitude for this short time in nature, but also appreciative of the comfortable apartment waiting for me.
I came home ready to type the words I’d written at an actual crossroads, feeling like something in me was also at a crossroads, but then I thought I might write about something else.
So I guess I did end up writing about appreciating the clouds, after all.
