Cloud Watching

So often taken for granted, the sky is the ever-changing backdrop to our lives, the most variable aspect of the world around us. While the physical forms that make up our world remain, by and large, the same, the sky goes through an endless sequence of special effects, like a giant film-reel of endless colour and light that just keeps rolling. In the midst of what have become our increasingly hectic lives, how often do we fail to even notice the startling white cumuli amassed overhead, the intense shaft of radiant light that cuts through heavy cloud or the blood-red sphere that seems to almost drop from the sky at the end of the afternoon yet, when a traffic jam causes us to stop, to have nowhere else to go, nothing else to think about for a moment or two, these startling phenomena can suddenly appear as though from nowhere and fill us with awe.

On that thought and inspired by the fact that I’ve spent a certain amount of time painting clouds over the past week or so, I wanted to share some of the more awe-inspiring skies from my photo gallery:

About Helen White

Helen White is a professional artist and published writer with two primary blogs to her name. Her themes pivot around health and wellbeing, expanded consciousness and ways of noticing how life is a constant dance between the deeply subjective and the collective-universal, all of which she explores with a daily hunger to get to know herself better. A lifetime of "feeling outside" of mainstream...slowly emerging as Asperger's Syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome plus a complex of co-morbid health challenges, being a confirmed Highly Sensitive Person and an INFJ personality type, not to mention born under an out of bounds moon (need I go on) fed into the creation of Living Whole; a self-exploratory blog fed by a wide angle lens tilted at "health and wellness" topics. Meanwhile, Spinning the Light is a free-for-all covering a multitude of playful and positive subjects about life in the broadest sense...written with a no-holds-barred approach. Needless to say, their subjects cross over quite often.
