How to Live Life with Your Head in the Clouds

I’d forgotten how I’d lay on a blanket on the front lawn when I was a child finding images in the passing clouds . . . until I saw this:

You don’t need to plan an exotic trip to find creative inspiration. Just look up, says Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society. As he shares charming photos of nature’s finest aerial architecture, Pretor-Pinney calls for us all to take a step off the digital treadmill, lie back and admire the beauty in the sky above.”

  1. Oh Judy-Judith! There really is an organization called the Cloud Appreciation Society!?! With over 100,000 members!?! I had no idea! “To tune into the clouds is to slow down…” This observation on the “aimless activity” of cloudspotting has utterly inspired me.

    The last time I was this thrilled about really looking up at clouds was when I was taking a watercolour painting class many years ago and our assignment one week was to learn how to do clouds. I spent the week staring upward and imagining what technique I’d use to paint this cloud or that one. It was a lovely week…

    Thanks so much for this.


    • Carolyn,
      Your comment has captured exactly the reaction I had when I saw this video talk. Isn’t that wonderful – a Cloud Appreciation Society . . . and the picture the members send in are just priceless.
