In Time

This once pristine saucer shaped pileus cloud is rapidly and ironically being¬†cannibalized¬†by the rising cumulus cloud below that created it. Pileus clouds usually don’t last very long. You and your camera must be ready.

It’s a clarifying experience when you wake up to see this on the whiteboard in your hospital room, and it’s probably time to make the most of the moments that remain.

LITTLE THINGS
By Julia A. F. Carney (1823 – 1908)

Little drops of water
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean,
And the pleasant land.

So the little moments,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.
