I never tire of looking up to see the cloud forms above. The wonderfully blue sky on this particular day made for such a vivid contrast for the soft fleecy cloud formations that looked like snow covered alps or further along the skyline became countries surrounded by azure blue oceans.

I was reminded of a favourite child-hood fantasy. Playing with children who lived in Cloudland. We had some fine times too.

My first ever aeroplane flight when I was still quite young totally spoilt that illusion when I realised that we flew through the fleecy clouds scudding about the sky that day. There was nothing whatsoever solid about them after all. No way I could have played on those clouds - and not a cloud land child in sight either. I was very upset, but the hostess that day invited me to help her give out sweets to passengers. It took the edge off my huge disillusionment and I certainly enjoyed the role. I would be an air hostess when I grew up.

Sadly that didn’t happen either as being tall enough to reach the overhead lockers is sort of a necessity, but isn’t something I am. 

Oh well. Back to daydreaming. Well when I was with the cloud children I became one of them - I could walk on the clouds too. I could run, jump, hop, skip and turn cartwheels. So my happy daydream companions and our adventures remained a part of my alone moments.

It’s truly a fine autumn, blue sky days, fleecy white clouds from time to time, and that balmy stillness as the heat of summer with it’s particular style of energy begins to ease out letting the plants begin to wind down. Soon the leaves of this tree with change colours, and begin to fall as the tree begins to rest and reserve it’s energies over the coming winter in readiness for a spring.
The last of the tomato crop is slowly ripening and proving good eating. The mandarins are rapidly filling out and I’m looking for the first hint of the gorgeous orange skin to show. There is so much blossom on the lime and the lemon and the bees are busy about their work of ensuring those blooms pollinate and become new fruit.
It’s a good time of year to prepare for a winter project to keep creativity awake. I will miss daylight saving time and those extra hours of daylight, but it’s also nice to be in a warm place, making something beautiful - a crochet rug, or some embroidery, or perhaps a short story that I’m happy about.
Meanwhile I rather like sitting out on the deck and imagining images and shapes in those fleecy clouds overhead.
