Are you a Nepheloc ?
Well I have to hold my hands up,confess, and say yes. And what’s more I’ve been doing it again today!
Nephelococcyggia is the technical term for cloud gazing, or for seeking and finding shapes in clouds.
We all did it as youngsters. Remember those school summer holidays, day after day of endless wall to wall sunshine, and where ever you were, whatever you were doing there was always a moment when we just stopped, lay on our backs and looked up at the sky. Sometimes the sky was cloudless, just the deepest of deep blue, but at other times you were surrounded. Large clouds, small clouds, fluffy clouds, fine laced clouds, dense thick clouds; and they were all on the move; slowly, quickly, morphing as they sailed on by. You gazed at them seeing and imagining all manner of things as they scudded across the sky changing shape and form, and all silhouetted against the heavens.
I know we lead busy, hectic and stressful lives but once in a while it’s the simple pleasures that can be the most rewarding, and especially if you haven’t done for a while.
Go on, give it a go!
