Enjoy the Ancient Act of Cloudwatching

This afternoon I saw the most marvelous cirrus clouds over Northern California. Wispy hallmarks of the kind of beautiful blue-sky day during which you hardly feel the air. Upon inspection they seemed to be moving pretty quickly.

When I came in, I found that Bethe, at Grass Stain Guru, happened to write about cloudwatching today and she, in turn, wrote about Jane Kirkland’s fun Nature Challenge cloudwatching video. (Something in the air?) Both challenge you to slow down, look up, and enjoy the age-old game of making objects out of the shapes you see in the clouds.

What do you see here?

  1. I love cloud watching. Blanket, Diet Dr. Pepper and just enjoying the view. I think I blogged about cloud watching last year, but this is a reminder to actually do it this month!

  2. Weekend Cowgirl, your cloudwatching scenario sounds perfect! Here’s to more perfect cloud-watching days.
