The following article is my answer to The Sandbox Writing Challenge — Exercise 10

What fascinates me?
Clouds. The answer to this fascinating question has to be clouds. And questions, of course. Questions fascinate me. And answers. I mustn’t forget answers. I am forever fascinated by people’s answers: not that I am any kind of nosy parker!
Returning my head to the clouds, first and foremost I am transfixed by the shapes they make. Often, when I am cycling around the village I call home – morning time one day, evening time the next day – I have to stop to properly appreciate an amazing sunrise or sunset. These I snap with my mobile phone – hopefully you have seen them in the header of my blog? These ever-changing views afforded me from my daily tour de St Bees never cease to entrance me with their captivating colours, their closeness yet far awayness, their speed of movement across the heavens. The longer I look at these clouds, the more I defocus, the more I see them differently.
Sometimes these clouds take flight.
Sometimes these clouds mystify me.
Sometimes these clouds resemble angry yet radiant faces.
Sometimes I wonder if they are not trying to say something to me. Perhaps clouds are God’s message banner – to make me stop, to make me look, to make me listen, to help me see what I need to see. Truly.
