Melting Clouds

Melting Clouds vlcsnap-2014-11-28-12h15m37Nothing on the schedule, no where to go and nothing to do. I find myself just lying on the grass the local park staring up at the clouds as so slowly pass through the sky. The weather is a perfect temperature and my mind just seems to relax. I let go and there is nothing in the world more important than just being. Any nagging thoughts about anything seem to move past with the clouds in the sky.

Moments like this are rare but I remember them like they were just yesterday. When was the last time I felt this way? No future, no past. Just the peace that lives somewhere in the recesses of my mind that has always been there but rarely recognized in this fast paced world I live in. Always another thought, always another distraction.

There are times in this life where we must learn to walk away and melt clouds.

    We used to lie in our backyard as kids on a blanket and do the same, I miss that calming ritual sometimes. Perhaps I should get a hammock-or better yet, get on a pool float and just relax and watch the clouds melt!

  3. You are one of the first person to like and follow my blog, I thank you for this. This post seem to corrobate my recent posting and as I think of how we handle challenges in our human way I couldn’t but say: “There are times in this life where we must learn to walk away and melt clouds.”
