I just had one of those sublime moments, at my work desk, looking out the bay windows and seeing the fantastic clouds racing by and I had to stop and draw it. Often I feel like I’m at the helm of a ship, sitting up there looking across the sky.
I went into central London this morning for a dentist appointment and run a few errands, and with the rain lashing about, holding onto my umbrella was worse than fighting the Kraken. It was kind of a hard week, with work and I’d gotten myself all worked up over a misunderstanding with a good friend (which we fortunately worked out), and I came home from the city cold and tired. But late this afternoon, the rain quieted and I was given this amazing cloud performance. Just as it hit me, as I was sitting there in front of the windows, this song by Jim Moray called Nightvisiting started playing on the stereo and suddenly things were so right that they hurt.
