What a wonderful world....

I see skies of blue.... clouds of white
Bright blessed days... dark sacred nights
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world....

Did you ever lay in the grass, on a bright spring/summer day, and watch the clouds float by?  Picking out animals, people or things in the clouds?  I think we could all spend a few minutes doing this.  Let our imaginations run a little wild, be a kid again.

Can you remember watching an airplane leave a white trail in the sky?  Even if you couldn't hear it.  Thinking it was sooo cool.  When my kids were small, very small, still babies really... they knew instinctively to look up when that airplane flew overhead... how did they know to look up?  We should all look "up" more in life.

Some days it's the little things that make me remember it really can be....  and most of the time is a wonderful world.

Do I have you humming again?

song lyrics to "What a Wonderful World" by Weiss and Douglas aka Thiele


  1. We should all go back to those child like ways at times, shouldn't we? Thanks for reminding us.

  2. Yes, I am humming in my head, I love that song!! And yes, I was a big fan of laying on my back and looking up and seeing all sorts of things in the clouds...thanks for taking us back there.

  6. Beautiful photos Chris and I love that song. I think you are so right, we all need to stop and look up every now and then and see what wonderful things are around. We still pick out animal clouds and my son still gets excited over planes. :)

  7. Love that song! I think you are right, we should all look up more often. I love to stare at the clouds and take tons of pictures of them. Yours came out beautiful!
