The magic of clouds.

In appreciation of clouds.

Live with your head in the clouds.

In the wake of yesterday’s post about the power of meditation, this recent TED Talk seemed a perfect way to end the week.

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. Outstanding 🙂 What would our world be without clouds; what would we be? And, to borrow from Joanie Mitchell, aren’t we living in a wondrous time with our fancy ways to ‘look at clouds from both sides’, literally and metaphorically.


  2. This is great Paul! I tried to post a comment on your ‘Sunday Pictures’ post (which is a great idea for a smile at the weekend) but it wouldn’t let me – hoping I have more luck here! 🙂


  3. There is a place on Hilly Fields in Colchester where there is a clear view of the setting sun that lights up the clouds in dramatic colour.
