Happy Clouds

A Hallmark moment. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are ... than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise." ~ Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), Letter, April 10, 1853, to Harrison Blake, in The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 6, p. 219
Another photograph taken from our road trip to Illinois. In the rolling hills of Kentucky, the pastures were still green and trees were yet green. No storms, no fog, no cold north winds; just a warm fall breeze to push the happy clouds on their way. This scene struck me as being full of life and peace; a Hallmark card setting. The only items lacking were a group of contented cows with markings of black and white or perhaps a group of children flying colorful kites.
