I stare up at the big, blue sky and watch the clouds scudding across the vast space. “Look mommy, do you see the dinosaur?” I see it, and remember the times when as I child I used to cloud watch. I remember the simple pleasure of lying on the grass, arms and legs outspread, and just being. I remember feeling the sun beating down on my body and the cool breeze blowing across my face. I turn my face and look at my children experiencing the same pleasure that I used to. Then I look back up at the clouds and give myself over to the pleasure of lying in the sun on the grass and experiencing the moment. I know that now when I think of cloud gazing, I will not only remember my childhood but also the magic of looking up at the sky with my own children.
Do you enjoy cloud gazing?
