Appreciating the Clouds


I was going to call this article “Appreciating the Clouds”, because:

  1. I do appreciate them.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  1. The clouds were crazy by me today! It would rain, then stop, then continue raining, and stop, and so forth. The clouds were a split between pleasant like your picture and dark, ominous blankets. I guess I appreciated the scarier ones since my attention was drawn to them more.
