A Photo A Day For 6 Months: Day 37~ RRC~Clouds

"There air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be? It is the same the angels breathe."

~Mark Twain, Roughing it.

APAD and RRC: Clouds. 

Clouds, By Percy Bysshe Shelley

After a long absence from blogging and posting my photos, I am easing myself back into the art of the daily blog update. Last year, as 2011 moved along, I was finding myself edging off the cliff of inspiration. I wasn't happy with my photography, or the things I wanted to talk about. At times, it felt like I was literally jumping out of my own skin. I was putting it all down to a series of unfortunate events which had taken place earlier in the year, and my subsequent exhaustion from it. I figured it was my Fibromyalgia adding to it all and making everything seem worse then it really was, and as much as I kept trying to remember that intellectually, my body was simply too tired to feel inspired creatively. Come to find out, it wasn't just the Fibromyalgia or the events that took place, it was the fact that I now have an under active thyroid or, Hypothyroidism. Fast forward, and a silly little pill later, my energy and over all well being is getting back to normal. 

So, long story short, this is my second time playing with the Round Robins since my hiatus ended a little over a month ago. And I couldn't be happier to play along during a challenge that highlights one of my favorite subjects... CLOUDS. I was only able to capture one new cloud photo, the one you see above, because the Bay Area has been experiencing some really clear, lovely weather of late, but I did do a little tip-toe through my archives to show off some photos I haven't displayed in the past. Well, most of them are anyway. Some have been posted previously, but there are a few that will be seen for the first time.
