Whenever my kids are home from school for a break, whether it be summer, spring or winter, I always feel a connection to my past. I remember the same breaks as a little girl and it brings me back to a time when life seemed so basic and simple. I have so many fond memories of my childhood. I remember spending days lying in the grass looking up to the cloud filled sky, drifting off. It was a form of meditation searching for images in the cloud formations. Galloping horses would appear and be swept away moments later by the wind creating yet another image. Life is like that sometimes, changing with the wind, showing us there is always something new when the wind blows.
Star gazing was the same for me as a little girl. I would sleep outside on the back deck and stare into the night sky wondering what was out there for me to explore. I would wish upon a star and get a jolt of excitement when one would shoot across the sky in the blink of an eye! I liked to believe it was the Universe sending me a message.
I am an Aquarian and I have been told I live in the clouds by more than one person, it is true. I don’t know if it’s a way of connection to my childhood or my imagination that gets set free when I get lost in the clouds, but I like the feeling I get when I stare into the sky, let go and just be.
We don’t take time anymore unless its a holiday to just sit and look at what nature has for us to enjoy. Unless there is nothing else to do we don’t stop and see the beauty that surrounds us each day. We are blessed with so much, our only fault is not finding the time to see and appreciate it. This year take time to see what nature creates in the simplicity of a cloud. You may want to move there with me.
This is one reason I live in the clouds…come join me 😉
