"Clouds are not something to moan about. They are, in fact, the most dynamic, evocative and poetic aspect of nature.”

“to tune into the clouds is to slow down. It’s a moment of meteorological meditation.”

“We are part of the air. We don’t live beneath the sky. We live within the sky.”
--Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society - here's a NY Times long article about it.

I've always appreciated clouds - I remember coworkers at the patio bar after work asking what the hell I was looking at - and a google image search for cloud site:kirk.is shows plenty of photos I've taken.

The article was posted at Lost in Mobile, webkeeper Shaun McGill liked my comment

If there was only one place on earth where clouds gathered, could you imagine how much people would pay to travel there? And how in awe they would be, and how many photos they’d take?
Great stuff, and I'm the newest member of the Cloud Appreciation Society!
