The Cloud Appreciation Society

Have you ever looked up in the sky on a bright clear day and look at the clouds?

Aren't they fascinating? The ones in the picture hides the sun, and sun rays beaming out from behind. Such a spiritual sight and also inspirational.

This one looks like a mermaid leaning to the right.

I check out the web and I found the Cloud Appreciation Society website at I never know such society exist. But after just a few minutes browsing this website, I was already taken....and amazed by the beauty of the clouds photos and as well as their manifesto:

"WE BELIEVE that clouds are unjustly maligned
and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them.

We think that they are Nature’s poetry,

and the most egalitarian of her displays, since
everyone can have a fantastic view of them.

We pledge to fight ‘blue-sky thinking’ wherever we find it.
Life would be dull if we had to look up at

cloudless monotony day after day.

We seek to remind people that clouds are expressions of the
atmosphere’s moods, and can be read like those of
a person’s countenance.

Clouds are so commonplace that their beauty is often overlooked.
They are for dreamers and their contemplation benefits the soul.
Indeed, all who consider the shapes they see in them will save
on psychoanalysis bills.

And so we say to all who’ll listen:
Look up, marvel at the ephemeral beauty, and live life with your head in the clouds!"
