Children understand the wonder of clouds, the puffy whites that form any number of shapes. Do you remember as a child when you imagined and saw in the clouds an animal or a person’s face? A heart.
Talk about everyday moments.
Adults suppress much of that imaginative talent, as life gets in the way. We don’t allow or even remember to take a moment out of a busy day and let our minds drift with the clouds, allow our imagination to dance with the images. Yet doing so can exercise the imagination; can help relax. It bring us into the present moment. It becomes an everyday way to appreciate the beauty of the world around.
Perhaps we feel guilty, because cloud watching legitimizes doing nothing. But it also allows us to experience the benefits of simply being. And why not?
So, here is to more cloud watching, dear blogging friend. To letting the creative mind, even if only for a few moments, run wild.
