Floating Along

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."

~ Sir John Lubbock 1834-1913

The last blog I was on said that we needed to slow down. Now yours says to rest. Yes, I think I am being told to lay down and watch some clouds! I must may do that tomorrow! :)

Love the colors in this.

Deb said...

No, it is very necessary for the soul.

Sharon said...

Very much worth your while, to simply watch the clouds go by.

A very attractive and lovely thought together with a wonderful image of the sky in summer.

Sadly it works less well in an overcrowded, urban environment where green, open spaces are, through an absence of thoughtful, imaginative planning on the part of city councils, in rather short supply.

I fear we've been "guilted" out of resting and watching the clouds float. What a great reminder & beautiful sky here!

i spent 20 minutes yesterday just contemplating the sky, it looked just like this, bright bright blue white white and soooo gorgeous. looking up makes me feel better, our clouds were scudding really fast and the green trees after the rain were neon green against the sky

Your sky photo reminds me of when I was a child and looking for familiar animal shapes in the clouds. I still do that. :) Thanks for the memory.

Gorgeous clouds! We must be on the same 'wave length', so to speak. I just did a post about clouds on my blog. And, I love the quote you used. It sums it up just perfectly.
