Photo of clouds
This sight out the window of my plane just grabbed me. I love clouds.

I used to lay in the grass, look at the clouds and dream. I looked for shapes, but I also used to wonder what was on the other side. I’m not so old, I didn’t know what was there, but hey, I was a kid. I still believed.

I know Joni doesn’t much care for clouds, she’s seen them from all sides and sees only rain coming from them, but clouds still have the power to capture my imagination. They carry me back to when I was young and life was simple. And they fuel my creativity. Maybe I’ll get to that cloud story that has simmered at the edge of my imagination. Or maybe I’ll use that energy to finish something else.

But I love clouds. Even the dark, stormy ones.

Do you dig the clouds or are like Judi and think they rain too much? Let me know and you’ll be entered into my monthly drawing for an AnaBanana gift basket, that might not chase the clouds away, but will make you feel – and smell – better. 🙂 Winner is announce first blog post of the new month.

Perilously yours,


When not staring at the clouds and wondering, Pauline likes to stare at a computer screen and write words. Lots of them. Enough to fill books. In fact, many are books. Thirteen books and some short stories. Family Treed: The Big Uneasy 1.5, my “amuse bouche,” my short story, should release before the end of the month. You can check back or you can sign up to be notified. Just pop over to my website at

With all of time at risk, it’s a bad time to fall in love…unless it’s the only time…

    I LOVE clouds. I credit my first grade teacher for getting me hooked. She had the class lie in the grass and stare up at the clouds and share what we “saw.” Is there anything more exciting (well, you know what I mean) than a really super cool cloud?

    I’ve taken hundreds of pics of clouds while flying (in planes, ha ha) and I am convinced Texas clouds are the best. I swear, whether you’re coming from North, South, East or West, there’s a sign in the sky that says, “Welcome to Big Texas Cloud Zone–Enjoy!”

    Great post, Pauline!
