In my evening walk last last evening I observed some kids at play. Strangely all looking up and gazing at the sky. I too looked up and what did I see? A sky lit-up with a spectacular symmetrical pattern of clouds.
It is a wonder how little children have the ability to observe and enjoy simple events. While grown-ups are too busy thinking – non issues. The lesson that children can give us is that being curious and aware we don’t miss out on the amazing things happening around us.
I quickly got back home took a couple of pictures. Much later Sanjay with his Merchant Navy learning mentioned that this happening is termed a Cirrus cloud.
The Wikipedia states “A cirrus cloud is a visible mass of water or ice particles suspended at a considerable altitude. Clouds are formed when water vapor in the air is cooled and condenses as part of the water cycle. Clouds consist of billions of tiny water droplets (and even ice crystals) floating in the sky and appear in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on how and where they formed.
I would love to add Albert Einstein’s quote and live it:
“There are two ways to look at life. One is as though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is”.
