“You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.” – Henry David Thoreau

Sky watching or “skying” is a natural human act – one that we’ve been doing since we were children. There is something so peaceful and inspiring about looking up at the big blue sky and watching the clouds and birds float by. Clouds are fascinating specimens, constantly shifting and transforming – never holding their shape for very long. There is a lot we can learn from the big open sky above us.

Today’s challenge is simple. Find a place that allows for a view of the whole sky… the more the better. Lay a blanket down. Put on some sunglasses if it’s really bright and sunny. Lie on your back and look up at the sky. Watch the clouds or the clear blue sky. Try to spot any flying creatures. Look at the tree tops if there are any around you and imagine what it would be like to be up there. Do this for at least 30 minutes today.

What did you feel as you were staring up at the sky? What can you learn from the sky’s vastness? Please share in the facebook group
