I hadn't been thinking of putting up more pictures this evening. I had something else in mind, but I just ran out of time, so that will have to wait until another Thursday. Instead, I took a look through my abundant browser bookmarks. And I found clouds.
Specifically, I found a website that first came to my attention in somebody's blogroll, and I wish I remembered who (pipe up if it's you). The Cloud Appreciation Society is based in the UK, but has members from Argentina to Zimbabwe. (One can join for only £6.00.) There's no need to be a member, though, to appreciate their Manifesto, which begins,
WE BELIEVE that clouds are unjustly malignedThey have photos, too, including a Cloud of the Month page and a substantial photo gallery. I was inspired to add a few of my own, below the well-appreciated orange cloud, but do check out the ones at the site, which are first rate.
and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them.
We think that they are Nature’s poetry,
and the most egalitarian of her displays, since
everyone can have a fantastic view of them.
I've looked at them from both sides now.
Welcome or welcome back to Kitchen Table Kibitzing, a community series that posts nightly at 8:00 Eastern. remembrance and nomandates came up with the idea for this series during Netroots Nation 2013.
As we envision it, KTK is a community for those who wish to share part of their evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, interesting videos (hey, palantir!), and so forth. We would also appreciate links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate.
Please note that pie fights will be unwelcome in this community, just as in most other series at DKos. There's lots of space at the rest of the site for fighting with other Democrats, progressives, and liberals, and we don't want those battles dragged into this series.
Finally, readers may notice that most who are posting diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but that definitely does not mean that newcomers will be excluded or unwelcome. We're happy to welcome guests to our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.
