Cloudy Days are for Everyone

Clouds

Okay, you guys. So I absolutely love nature metaphors about life. I’m always concocting new ones or seeking them out in daily life…oftentimes spontaneously. And tonight after I took this photo, when I was driving home from work later on, I started thinking…about how much I love clouds. And then about how every time I look at the clouds I can find beauty. Just like that.

And then I got to thinking about how people talk about the perfect day as “there wasn’t a cloud in sight.” Like that’s the perfect day. Like a day in life without clouds is perfect. But no, not me….I like to find my easy beauty. All I have to do is look up. Just muster up enough energy or presence or awareness to look up. And there it is. I can be so easily moved.

Anyways then I thought about life and how I am thankful for my proverbial clouds in life…Because without shadow, there’s no light…and without sadness, there’s no joy.

And so on and so forth. Anyways, this is new for me – if you can’t get to a blog post, maybe you just write it on an image on Facebook or Instagram? So I start telling my amazing friend Carmen Maianu about my metaphor of the day that I plan to carry with me these days…and she reminds me we share an affinity for nature metaphors and THEN she starts talking about how the clouds produce the rain which makes things grow down here on earth and then BAM it got that much better. Let’s avoid a drought and a desert, here. Let’s bring on the rain clouds. Have a cloudy night y’all! xoxoxo

P.S. Not to mention some of the sunsets I’ve witnessed on a cloudy night. smile emoticon
