Do you ever have days when you let your imagination run wild? And suddenly anything seems possible.
When you gaze up at the clouds and a new world takes shape. Shapes and figures appear in the sky. Taking us out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary.
When the morning mist turns into magical drops of hope and wonder.
And sunrise breaths in the brightness and promise of new beginnings.
When the afternoon clouds speak of adventures waiting.
But sometimes it’s easy to lose perspective. When we can’t tell which way is up.
Or what’s real and what’s not.
When the sun and the moon and the clouds all appear intertwined.
We can be traveling along an unknown road and the sun can be dazzling. The clouds on the horizon can resemble something they’re not.
And suddenly we’re not in Australia anymore. We’re amongst the Alps in Switzerland
But then the storms come and there’s no turning back. This is the real world.
Yet with reality and with every dark cloud there’s a silver lining.
And it’s then we reach out. When those rain clouds threaten to spill we huddle together, we grin and bear it and we weather the storm. Sometimes it’s all we can do.
Where ever you are, I hope you’re having a wonder filled day.
I hope you make time to step outside and gaze up at the sky. Whether it’s cloudy or sunny, grey or dazzling I hope you can find some beauty in the sky above you and in everything that surrounds you.
To turn the ordinary moments into the extraordinary.
In response to Frank’s theme this week on Clouds over at Dutch goes the Photo.
