Cloud watching on a perfect day

By Christy Amular - October 14, 2011

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer`s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.

Today is one of those rare days when everything is is bright, sunny, perfect.. it's almost unreal. Everything feels like Cloud Cuckoo Land.  So on a perfect day, the most sensible thing to do is to go cloud watching {scientific name: Nephelococcygia}!

Cloud watching is fun and cheap and if not for the tasks that are awaiting me I can go cloud watching all day until my dark brown eyes turn blue!

May your weekend be as bright and sunny as today. Happy weekend!

  1. What an inspired post. Last year, when a nifty cloud observation book came out, I promised myself I would be more observant of the clouds. I used to watch the sun go down at the Cloisters (in NYC), and often thought how each cloud display was like an alphabet of messages, waiting to be deciphered.
    Gosh, I ought to make time to go watch the sky for at least 15 minutes! Thank you for this post!
