So, what do you see in this cloud formation? How does your imagination form a familiar (or fantasy) figure in the whites, grays and blues? Any feelings or emotions accompany the time spent identifying cloud shapes? Some may discount such efforts as wasteful and nonproductive, but the act can relax the mind and reduce everyday stress to allow for clearer thinking, thought incubation and even potential innovation!

It doesn't take much time to 'escape' from reality - just a moment or two! All of us seem to be overly busy in the 'rat race world', but we can all benefit from a brief respite. And, as Dean Shareski states in his Let's Stamp Out Busyness post, "I'm not suggesting your life isn't full but for the most part it's the life you've chosen." - We make choices all of the time about how to spend our time and we need to start owning up to those choices. We also have the choice and the power to prioritize time for the benefits of 'cloud-reading'! It's not always easy, but it is....and it seems to be something that is often swept under the carpet of 'busyness.' Waterside Shopping Center, Pine Ridge Rd & US 41 E, Naples, FL
