I attended a wonderful brunch yesterday that a dear friend hosted. Had a lovely time and ate waaaaaaay too much, but c’est la vie. 🙂
When I left her house and walked outside I noticed these clouds in the sky over the Catalina mountains. Now I’m no weather or cloud formation expert, but I found them to be something that I’ve only seen once before. I’m not sure that the image (taken with my phone) even does them justice. Seeing them with my own eyes was one of those moments that takes your breath away.
People think I’m crazy when I express that I think we have visitors from space. So if that’s what YOU think, hey, that’s fine with me. I just happen to personally believe that we are not alone in this beautiful universe and that our little blue planet is not the only one with life. I don’t believe in aliens (the kind that Hollywood depicts as being malicious). But I do believe that our star brothers and sisters exist and that they are benevolent in nature. Namaste’
So … while traveling around the Old Pueblo the other day, I happened to notice a pretty interesting cloud formation. Sitting at the stoplight, the thought occurred to me that the clouds could indeed be cloud ships.
Yeah, lots of people will think I’m crazy and I just might be, but I truly don’t believe we’re alone in the universe. I mean, how egotistical is that???? What if our star brothers and sisters really do exist? What if they’re all around us, just waiting for an invitation to be observed?
Feel free to comment and let me know what you think. Namaste’
For those of my readers not familiar with southern Arizona, it’s typical this time of year to have what we call the “monsoons.” Big thunderheads build up in the afternoons and can produce some wicked storms.
Sometimes they never materialize. Like this shot of the clouds to our north. Big clouds, no rain. Oh, well. (I took this with the Instagram app on my phone.)
We see them coming and always hope that they will be big “producers.” I keep hoping, day after day. Every little drop of rain is a gift in my book. Namaste’
The weather reports all say we’re supposed to have some big rain tonight and tomorrow. I’m ready. As far as I’m concerned, we never get enough. This photo was taken in my back yard as the sun started to peek under the early evening clouds. I hope the birds have some place nice and warm and dry when the rains come.
Sometimes the light just plays perfectly for the camera and the subject. This was one of those times. Namaste’
What’s a sun dog, you say? The technical explanation is best left to someone else (if you know, I welcome your comments). I just happened to look up in the sky today, as the clouds are coming in for some more rain. Then I noticed how the light was reflecting from the sun to the clouds. Our meteorologist has talked about this on numerous occasions and I finally got a picture of one. Oh, yeah, and the birds are all hanging out on the wires again. Maybe they’re just getting some extra sun before it went completely behind the clouds.

Oh, my! I guess this isn’t the time of year to worry about dieting. So I don’t – ha ha! While having lunch with a friend, I noticed that when I put my glasses down on the menu, the lens landed on the word desserts. What do you know! I love desserts. Diet downfall.
The second photo is of the moon glow last night on the clouds. Full moon + lacy clouds = dreamy shot. In my opinion there’s no light like moonlight. Namaste’
Sometimes you just happen to come across something fun, like this whirligig. It’s pretty tall and sculpted from bronze but backlit by the morning sun. I had to stand in some prickly things to get the clouds in the background, but getting this shot was worth it. I applied a couple of effects just for the fun of it.
Do you remember having a whirligig of any kind when you were a kid? I do. I used to love to watch them spin. Namaste’
