My name is Lucy and I am a cloudaholic. I carry a cloud book in my car and embarrass my children by pulling over to the side of the road to look up the names of unusual cloud formations. I could spend every summer day lying on my back gazing up at the sky.
Do you remember the famous scene from A Boy Named Charlie Brown?
Lucy: Aren’t the clouds beautiful? They look like big balls of cotton. I could just lie here all day and watch them drift by. If you use your imagination, you can see lots of things in the cloud formations. What do you think you see, Linus?
Linus: Well, those clouds up there look to me look like the map of the British Honduras on the Caribbean.That cloud up there looks a little like the profile of Thomas Eakins, the famous painter and sculptor…
Lucy: Uh huh. That’s very good. What do you see in the clouds, Charlie Brown?
Charlie Brown: Well… I was going to say I saw a duckie and a horsie, but I changed my mind.
I’m more of a Charlie Brown kind of cloudspotter – I see duckies, too. And dinosaurs, and bears, and love, and surprise, and wonder.
I’ve enjoyed seeing your cloud photos in the Mortal Muses flickr groups over the last year – what you see in the clouds has inspired and amazed me. The vision and eloquence of all the Muses has expanded my own vision, and helped me to grow as a photographer. On this one-year anniversary, I want to celebrate all of the followers, contributors, and the Muses themselves. You’ve become a cherished part of my life, and I am so grateful to have been a part of this wonderful community of photographers. Here’s to another great year ahead! Much love.
