The wonder of clouds

The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn’t it be? It is the same the angels breathe.

— Mark Twain

I’m away this weekend, dipping toes into chilly water, singing, dancing and cloud watching – so please forgive me if it takes me a while to pop round and visit you.

And yes – I was actually wearing clothes (as opposed to nightwear) when I took this shot!

    For some reason I thought maybe you were in a long night gown and galoshes down by the water.

    The reflective quality of the cloud on the water is way cool.
