MUMMY"S MUSINGS...Skywatch #3

'Twinkle, Twinkle…..

Up above the world so high…

As a child, the sky always held immense fascination for me. The twinkling, mysterious night sky inspired wonder while the vast expanse of sky-blue by day always made me dream…
I remember we had fun trying to find our favourite fairy-tale character in the woolly clouds that floated by or conjure up stories about what might be hidden behind a particular ‘fluff’ of cloud.

Decades have passed by but no amount of scientific knowledge has been able to corrode my fascination for the sky and those cottony clouds.

However, I don’t remember indulging in night-time sky-gazing in a very long time now. Most of my evenings are inevitably occupied by more mundane earthly activities that tire me out.
But by day, like one of those ‘In-a-jiffy’ coffee vending machines, the sky still doubles as my ‘get-refreshed-in a second’ centre!

And I still try to find an Ugly duckling, the Mad-Hatter, a Bunny Rabbit or just Ginger and Buddy in the clouds.

Thanks to the 'Skywatch Friday ' team I am inspired to look up, more than ever before.

(A Rainbow!!We went so close, I felt I could reach out and touch it!)

(Thank You, Ginger and Buddy, for letting me share your space and joining me on my nostalgic Journey. Mummy loves you heaps.)

That was such a sweet post. Our Mom says she still enjoys looking at the clouds and trying to figure out what she sees there. It is a great game to play with the grandbipeds too.

Have a good weekend.

What awesome pictures. The rainbow hidden in those clouds is so cool!! My husband and I have always loved clouds and sunsets, our entire honeymoon picture book is pictures of clouds. We were so happy in love that we couldn't stay out of them!

Great shots...I love to see clouds from an airplane. I used to play the cloud game, it was a fun past time as a kid.

Gattina said...

That's a great quote about loving an animal and half our souls being awakened. I volunteer at the local animal shelter and I'm officially "a cat cuddler". I would be cuddling dogs too but most of them are too large for me to handle. Ginger and Buddy look as if they could handle a cuddle from me without overpowering me with energy. I could curl up on a sofa with them.

We love clouds, too. Always looking for a scottie one. So far haven't seen one.

At night, because we live so far away from big cities, our skies are very clear. When relatives come from the US, they just love looking at the night skies. We take them for granted.
