Cloud Appreciation

I joined The Cloud Appreciation Society on the 24th of June this year after reading Gavin Pretor Pinney's wonderful book about watching waves.

Not in Kansas Anymore?

My government's man-made efforts this week over Brisbane.
All I could get cloud-wise the other day were these shots of the Government's man-made clouds being sprayed all over the sky.
Julian Lennon's cloud photo.

I had no idea Julian Lennon was into clouds either, until I saw him in a story talking about his passion of snapping clouds with his 
(much better than mine) camera.

I wonder if Julian is a member of The Cloud Appreciation Society, as well?


Man's Face Seen In Clouds Before Death

Rainbow Dreaming - Tales from the Age of Aquarius

Now I just have to get Gavin's other book.

EPISODE 90 - 42 Minutes : 

Rosemary's White Album

Julian also seems to be a bit of a white feather spotter also.

The Meaning Of White Feathers 

As Messages From The Dead

Highway 42 and the Ultimate Answer?

Joining anything on the 24th of june is synchronicitously compelling, of course.

Clouds: what an intriguing concept for a book!

That Wavewatcher's Companion art... looks like a foamy phallus. Yea, I know, we always see what we want to in the clouds and the waves. In my defense, I've been syncing on the myth of the birth of Venus/Aphrodite, who was born from the pink foam of Uranus' castration.

I actually noticed that myself when I first saw the book,but I somehow think it was deliberately meant to be like that considering the erect lighthouse in the background.
I'm a big fan of Wilson Bryan Key and have read most of his books,so I know the little tricks pulishers play in artwork to sell books.
Just check this You Tube out about lighthouse symbolism if you don't believe me -

You may never think of High Noon the same way again.-)

I don't think I've ever had contact with a member of "The Cloud Appreciation Society" previously! But, what's not to like about clouds. When we were flying out to Mallorca there were some incredible cloud formations from the plane - but I only took one photo, wish I'd taken more now.

Oh, and thanks for the link.
