Watching the Clouds

There are two things I really love about watching the clouds.

1. Clouds are always changing.

While at Discovery Bay near Port Townsend, Washington last winter, the sky went from mostly blue to white and fluffy to dark and misty, all within a 12-hour period.

I’m sure you’ve spent time watching the clouds and seen shapes that reminded you of babies, dogs, and dragons. Twenty minutes later, the shapes have changed. There’s nothing like an ever-changing phenomenon to help promote creativity. As an artist, you can be like clouds, forming and reforming your ideas. 

2. Clouds are dreamy.

Studies have shown that our minds are at their most creative right before sleep, when you’re tired, or in a meditative state

If you’ve ever just laid on the ground and watched the clouds float by, you know how it can make you feel: calm and relaxed. It’s good to just let everything go.

Spend a few minutes watching the clouds.

You might be surprised at how much that simple pleasure can promote and increase your creativity. – dse
