Head In The Clouds (1)

As a child, I was told more than once to “get my head out of the clouds.”  Of course, those who said it meant that I should quit dreaming and pay attention.  I bet they didn’t know that I would grow up and my eyes would still be on the clouds.

I’ve mentioned before that I love looking at clouds and often see images among the Cumulus and Nimbus clouds.  I thought it would be fun to periodically put an image up for you to share what you see.

Don’t worry – I won’t analyze the results like a Rorschach inkblot test.   And I promise not to share your opinions with any psychological data mining companies (is there even a such thing?)

Have fun!  Come on and play along…leave a comment with what you see in the clouds:

What do you see (besides smog)?

I’ll leave  you with one piece of wisdom.  There is only one problem with keeping your eyes on the clouds…sometimes you miss the rocks in your path.

Oops...

Maybe it is best to keep your head out of the clouds when your feet are pounding the hiking trail.

    I see a dragon, crouched and braced to take flight. : )

      Your imagination was up bright and early, Hilary 🙂 I think I see the dragon, too. Thanks for playing along!

    Been there, done that!

    • JannatWrites September 27, 2011 / 10:46 PM

      The sad thing is, I wasn’t even moving at the time. I had stepped to the side to let someone by and I fell.

      When I have an injury, I at least like to have a cool story to tell. ‘Tis wasn’t meant to be;)

    I see Puff the Magic Dragon dead center . . . moving from left (his tail) to right (his head).

    • JannatWrites September 27, 2011 / 10:48 PM

      I see him, too. Maybe this one was too easy, Nancy 🙂

    “Reach for the stars but keep your feet on the ground” – Theodore Roosevelt

        I like the quote, too. Smart man, that Teddy Roosevelt was.

        Thanks, Carl!

      I didn’t see that one before, Jeanne. I think I see him in the big cloud, his head to the left.

    I got a dragon too … maybe practice taking lots of stops-and-look-at-the-clouds when hiking … Phew, that knee’s gonna be purple soon … try Arnica and Comfrey

    • JannatWrites September 27, 2011 / 10:52 PM

      The knee is nothing – I have a nasty deep purple bruise on my hip where I fell into a jagged rock. And I wasn’t even walking when it happened.

      Don’ t ask. I still can’t figure it out, Widdershins 🙂

      • Widdershins September 28, 2011 / 9:29 PM

        Blame it on a blip in the Earth’s gravitational field!

        • jannatwrites September 29, 2011 / 12:37 AM

          I had blamed it on me being an uncoordinated klutz, but I like your suggestion better, Widdershins!

    Dragon was the first thing that popped into my head. Then I tried to determine what I saw in the pattern of your bruise. lol So much for that…hope it doesn’t hurt too much, Janna.

  7. JannatWrites September 27, 2011 / 10:58 PM

    Bruise patterns, huh? I think I’ll stick to clouds, Patti 🙂

    The knee only hurts when I kneel on it. The bruise on my hip caused more pain, but even that is healing now.

    I saw the Roadrunner in the big cloud the first time I saw it. Beep. Beep.

    Hi Janna. I got in my email that your blog came out but couldn’t read it. I had to go to my blog site to look up recent posts I see that WordPress has made changes on the main page. MMMmmmm?

    I see a shark in the middle, swimming to the left, where a HUGE shark mouth awaits his dinner. Remember, you promised NOT to analyze!

    • jannatwrites September 29, 2011 / 12:33 AM

      Debbie, it seems you have stress in your life that threatens…

      Oh yeah, I did make a promise after all 😉

      (For anyone who might not know – I’m only kidding about my pseudo-analysis…it’s just a bunch of stuff I just made up!)

  10. pattyabr September 28, 2011 / 10:17 PM

    that is so interestingly coincidental that I fell onto my knee about two months ago and had an awful bruise (nasty hematoma) It took forever to go away. I think I still have a tiny remnant of the hematoma on my knee. I wasn’t looking at the clouds. I was mulling around in the dark. Similar?

    • jannatwrites September 29, 2011 / 12:39 AM

      Maybe neither one of us should be walking without assistance, Patty!

      The injuries are quite similar. I wasn’t even walking when I fell, so I honestly don’t know what happened. I was soooo embarrassed, though.

    I see a dragon too and have always had my head in a clouds and many a fall as well 😉 But sorry about your leg….hope you feel better soon. Be careful if the area around it gets very smooth and hot to touch, I recently had a infection from a fall and didn’t know to see the dr till I checked it up on the web and was glad I did. Needed antibiotics and about a month to heal.

    • jannatwrites September 29, 2011 / 9:51 PM

      Oh Bookjunkie, my leg isn’t slowing me down at all (except when I have to crawl on the floor). Thanks for the heads up about what to look for if infection sets in…thankfully, I don’t have the symptoms you mentioned.

      I can’t believe it took so long to heal. That must’ve been scary. I’m glad you went to the doctor and you’re okay.
