The Banality of Blue-Sky Thinking

Since leaving Ireland I have seen too few clouds. No, there are not as many cloudless days here in the KC area as there are in Phoenix's Valley of the Sun,  and yes in the crisp perfect sunlight the different houses and trees are strikingly beautiful. But day after day after day? The relentlessness of its beauty bores the pants off me. Go on, click the Blue Sky to get an idea. It's often very lonely to be invigorated by a grey day, and dare I say it but even more so one with just a hint of moisture.

One of Yahoo's Finds of the Year  is the website of The Cloud Appreciation Society. Chosen in Yahoo's Weird and Wonderful  category there are a ton of great photos - including those of amazing couds seen recently in Nebraska, and great big surf clouds in the Australian outback. They even include an excerpt from Ruskin's Modern Painters  - the section called Of the Open Sky.
