Life Is In The Clouds

Summer is a scorching affair in southern Taiwan. Over four or five months the temperature hovers in the mid 30s C (90 or above F), and humidity is high. But there are upsides to this weather, such as the many delicious that are in season. Lychee, mangoes, pineapples, dragon fruits, guavas, etc are cheap and plentiful.

One thing I personally enjoy immensely are the clouds. Year after year I am amazed and in awe at the dramatic, majestic, towering and ever changing cloud displays summer weather brings. It is not unusual to see black storm clouds, patches of blue and fluffy white clouds all in the same sky. As they silently glide by or hurry past driven by a storm, never once repeated scenes, sometimes dramatic, at other times peaceful and tranquil, it sure puts things in life into perspective.

India’s grand old man of the arts, Rabindranath Tagore, put it this way, “Dark clouds become heaven’s flowers when kissed by light.”

Life is in the clouds: great life, broad life, deep life, elevated life. ~ Hawaiian Proverb
