...go outside and get lost in clouds. That is my plan, anyway!

Last night I watched Gavin's TED talk about clouds and I realized that somehow in a process of growing up we left behind childhood behaviours that were so darn awesome - like cloud spotting. Remember daydreaming about walking on those puffy cotton balls or playing an animal guessing game with them? We (adults) don't do that anymore and that is kind of sad.

So from tomorrow, I will be going for little walks (15 minutes or so) to look at clouds. You?

This is what convinced me: 'You don’t have to… It's such an aimless activity, you're not going to change the world by lying on your back and gazing off at the sky, are you? It's a pointless activity. Which, is precisely why it's so important. We live in the sky, not under it. You don't need to plan an exotic trip to find creative inspiration. Just look up'. Thanks, Gavin Pretor-Pinney.

P.S: Head in the clouds.
P.P.S: Sky - enough said:)
