As the late summer arrives I find that I love to watch the cloud formations.
Big, thick clouds full of promise and puffy fecundity. The Albuquerque box
might be our most famous weather occurance but I still like my clouds

It may be informative, but it is not the way I see the clouds. I love the meditative watching of the clouds. I like to find the shapes within and watch them as they change.
I find that this is a restorative activity, a good creative exercise.
This one looks like a Golden Retriever
Here we have a tub duck over Washington.
A turtle about to take out the top of that elm.
A snail over Martineztown followed by a UFO.
This one, above the light post,looks a Samoyed or may a Pom.
