The Temporary Nature of Clouds

Autumn sunset in San Diego

Autumn sunset in San Diego

Often, as we look to the sky, we find fleeting beauty in the Temporary nature of clouds.

Traveling to San Diego on this Veteran’s Day weekend, I saw a variety of clouds, from the occasional puff just hiding the Autumn sun, to a full-on magical sunset. Beauty is all around us, but like the nature of clouds, just random water vapor, it quickly comes and goes.

As I compose this post, I am a few hours away from spending two days with some fellow bloggers near Palm Desert, California. Making wonderful online relationships as a result of blogging may feel temporary at times, but when we have the opportunity to meet face-to-face, the chance of making permanent, lasting relationships is forged.

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
― Rabindranath Tagore

cloud quote

I can happily say that my friendships with fellow bloggers certainly adds color to my sunset sky!

  5. Great idea for the week Terri – I too have connected with some people I’ve met through blogging and it’s been terrific. They’ve helped me to finalize travel plans to their countries and we’ve met for dinner with spouses which was great fun.
