There are rain clouds today! Great fluffy cotton balls that meander across the sky. I am fascinated by the patterns their shadows make. I am mesmerized by the way the sun goes into every nook and cranny, illuminating here and concealing there. I follow their paths with my eyes, awed by their unseen channels that guide them in their journey across the endless blue.
My cousin Dewayne and I used to find things in the clouds; I found faces and he found animals. And then we told their story. It was always a short story; we never went longer than a sentence or two. Because in the brief seconds it took us to tell it, the clouds would change. Today as I look at the clouds, I see a dwarf and a bear and I wonder what story Dewayne and I could tell.
Have you ever made up stories about the characters in the clouds?
