Clouds of all kinds

Look at the bright side, Europe is being fertilized by a cloud of volcanic ashes from the Iceland eruption.

It is good for the earth, and less convenient for air travel, oh well.
I don't give my right ass cheek (is that called: I don't give a damn?) about the Air Lines and their losses which supposedly amount to more $$$ compared to that event of September 11th. And all the people stranded? So what. Take a walk and look around you, you might even find something interesting, an other human being with a story, a glimpse of a biography. No reason to huddle in the airport.
Let the clouds fly by freely.
This event reminds me of an early Joni  Mitchell song: "Both Sides Now"

The first verse goes like this:

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice-ream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere,  I've looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done, but clouds got in my way
I've looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall; I really don't know clouds ... at all.

Talking about tunes, with the help of my brother I got the "Earth and Sky" song done, now we can move on.

As always, stay healthy, be content and stick with your sense of humor.

Greetings and regards, the Zee-Man

PS the picture was taken today, lots of fine formations but I only post this one, we are overdosed as is by images...

Spring Quake

All right, an other earthquake in China today with devastating consequences. There has been a lot of earthquakes lately. An unusual amount actually; I wonder why. 
It seems like the earth is revolting, sending tremors  to wake you up, something urgent perhaps.
Is the earth a being?
Do we take adequate care of this "being"? I suppose we do not, unless you believe the tremors are a result of Einstein's theory of relativity.
Now in the mean time, spring is here in the Shire. All good the Hobbit would say, smoking his pipe solemnly at four a clock at tea time.
You would think that humans are rational creatures, but that is sketchy. They mostly only care for their immediate satisfaction, that carrot which dangles in front of the donkey's nose.
Earthquakes? It is a wake up call to forfeit the carrot, yeah - that's it!

Eggs and Easter

So, I am not quite sure why and who invented the egg thing at Easter. Nevertheless, I bought four dozen of eggs, colored them and pretended to be the "Easter Bunny" and placed them randomly on my neighbors yard.
Was kind of fun.
They still have children of that age.
But what does it mean? Fertility, spring, abundance?
For Christ's sake, he was nailed at a cross - so what about these eggs?
Sure the eggs are charming and the kids have fun. But is there a deeper meaning behind this?
