It all depends on your perspective
Of course, most of us on the consumption end of things don't bother. We rush through the reading process, barely slowing down to read between the lines. Even if we manage to satisfy ourselves that we gleaned enough data to know what's going on - unlikely, but work with me here - we still miss the color and the flavor. We wolfed down the ice cream, so to speak. And in doing so we sort of tasted the vanilla as we gave ourselves an ice cream headache. But we didn't savor the moment.
So as I look at this sky and remember what it felt like to stand on the ground and what it felt like to be remarkably small and humble as I figured out how to shoot this beautifully memorable chunk of meteorology, I'm glad I enjoyed the proverbial ice cream.
Your turn: So which one is it? Sunny with clouds or cloudy with sun? Why does any of this matter?
One more thing: Blue sky...get it? Thematic's blue week continues. Scroll back to Thursday's entry to participate.
