I came to a point where I needed solitude and just stop the machine of thinking and enjoying what they call living, I just wanted to lie in the grass and look at the clouds. Jack Kerouac

“Mind is simply a combination of all the thoughts, of all the clouds. Mind has no independent nature of its own. When all the thoughts are gone and the sky is clean and clear, you will see that everything that you have paid so much attention to is nothing but emptiness. Your thoughts were allContinue reading “Sunday Zen Quote”
“When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind.” – Michel de Montaigne http://www.bquot.es/s/3295

Snow storms are numerous flakes falling from the clouds.

Photo was taken on the 21st, well before the worst of the storm hit late last night. Constant heavy rain and windy as all hell. Gotta love New England weather. This work A Pondering Mind is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

When I see blue sky with a smattering of clouds, it makes me happy. This my fellow readers, is all I need. Don’t need religion, nor read the bible. Don’t need to be told how to enjoy life. I am just basically one happy man, that likes solitude, peace of mind, and quietness. The coffeeContinue reading “The Way It Is”
There are no two clouds that look the same.
Peaceful Zen summer sky. The atmosphere at its best. It makes people happy. Time of photo: 5:48 PM.
The cloud gobbled up the sun. Bye bye. May another sun take your place. If not, it was nice knowing you.
Most of the day was cloudy, dull and humid. It turned out to be a nice evening at 7:50 PM.
The air is awful. Humid and sticky as hell.
Time of photo: 7:40 PM.
I like it when the sun is partially hidden by the clouds. It makes the sky look beautiful. Time of photo: 7:34 PM.
I love the mid-morning of the streaking, wispy clouds. Time of photo: 9:36 AM.
The heat and humidity really sucked today. At 4:00 PM, the air was so damn stifling, it like sucked the air right of you. The photo above and below were taken at 6:14 PM. The rain, or what rain fell was a short welcome relief.
At 1:05 PM, it was hazy, cloudy and 87 F with a feel of 93. 30 C with a feel of 34. The breeze in the shade feels good.
Time of photo: 5:39 PM.

Mid-day photo of billowing clouds, at 2:45 pm.
Gray sky, rain, and a temp of 48 F, 9 C. Photo taken at 9:17 AM.
The rain had just ended, and the sky still had the gloomy look. Warm and muggy here.
Took this photo, using the B&W mode. Hint: I do love black & white.
It was 60 degrees at 4:28 pm. When I saw the colorful sky, I knew I had to take the photo of it. In about 4 weeks, the sun will be setting at or around 4:10 pm.

Another warm day here in Massachusetts, which will be the last one. Colder air moving in for Sunday and Monday. Here’s a couple of photos of the end of day’s sunset.
Here is another photo of the clouds from the early evening of July 24. You can also a contrail, from the plane that passed by earlier.
Took these two photos earlier this afternoon. Lots of clouds, and no haze at all. This one is black and white. You can decide which you like.
