I've Looked at Clouds from Both Sides Now...

Today on my daily walk, I saw a cloud that looked like a squirrel to me.  Maybe I'm seeing animals everywhere these days because I've been spending so much time with my animal-loving little twin granddaughters, who are fanatical about all creatures great and small.  Or maybe it's simply because I'm one of those artsy right-brained types.  I don't know.  I often look at clouds, trying to see pictures in them; but then again, I'm often disappointed.  This cloud today, however, had a squirrel in it (it did!), and to prove it I'm posting a picture of it.
Do you see it?  If you're saying no, then you're probably one of those logical left-brained people who would rather solve a math problem than draw a picture*, and I'm going to have to help you out.
I wish I had a steadier hand using the "Paint" function on the computer, but I think this is about as good as it's going to get.  So, do you see the squirrel in the cloud now?  Or is your brain too left-leaning to see it?

I don't know, maybe being right-brained (illogical?) makes me see things that aren't there.  And just like the song says, I suppose "It's cloud illusions I recall/I really don't know clouds at all."

*(By the way, I envy you guys!  Algebra word problems used to reduce me to tears.  I wish I had more of your can-do problem solving ability--a trait I admire enormously in my hubby.)


  1. Hilarious! Maybe I'm not as right-brained as I thought I was, because I wouldn't have seen it without your drawing. Love it.

  2. I think I just wanted to find an animal...especially a duck or a bear because of the twins, but I settled for a squirrel.
