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...

I totally agree with your sentiments on volcano-vs-air travel. Volcanoes have already given us way more than airplanes ever will. Ground the planes, don a mask if you have to, and be glad you're alive!

Congrats on gettin' your song done. I'm sure that feels good.

PS: Nice to remember that Joni Mitchell song, too.

i hope the ash spewn (is spewn a word?) into the sky helps to solve some of the global warming issues with which our planet struggles.
and you're right, unless there is an emergency reason for travel, spending a few extra days in europe wouldn't be a tragedy. paris. amsterdam. london. rome? please!
