Clouds, Depression, Dreams, Positive, Symbol


I was reading some quotes about clouds the other day and noticed different reactions to the word. Some think of fluffy white clouds and feel happy. Others think of grey clouds and overcast days. What do you think of when you hear the word, ‘clouds’?

The Cloud Appreciation Society in America was formed for people who see the magic in clouds. The manifesto begins, ’We believe that clouds are unjustly maligned and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them.’ The manifesto also claims the beauty of clouds often goes unnoticed because they are commonplace. The Appreciation Society doesn’t seem to make a distinction between white fluffy clouds and dark stormy ones. Photos of all sorts of clouds feature on their website.

White cumulus clouds are often associated with serenity and positive thinking. On the other hand dark storm clouds symbolise depression, negativity or pessimistic thoughts. Jerzy Kosinski, an American novelist born in Poland, explained his reaction, ‘In London, the weather would affect me negatively. I react strongly to light. If it is cloudy and raining, there are clouds and rain in my soul.’

However, there are people who like overcast days better than sunny days. Personally, I prefer a sunny day, but not too hot. However, there are some good points about grey days. It is often easier to get good photos when there are no shadows messing up the shot I want.

Storms which sometimes accompany dark grey clouds excite some people. This may be because the air is charged with energising negative ions. These people don’t find storms and dark grey clouds depressing.

What does it mean when you have a dream about clouds? One school of thought suggests dreaming about white fluffy clouds means joy and good times are ahead. On the other hand storm clouds foreshadow setbacks which may involve danger. Rain falling from a cloud suggests illness. If clouds are being blown away the dreamer can expect better times in the near future. The sun shining through clouds is thought to indicate success after a time of trouble.

Some people associate watching clouds on a fine day with relaxation and renewal. John Lubbock, British statesman born in 1834 said,’Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.’ Regina Brett, American author and columnist, says, ‘Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.'

Do you find clouds interesting? If so, what type of clouds do you like? Have you ever watched clouds and seen a butterfly, question mark or other shape?

The Cloud Appreciation Society manifesto ends its statement about clouds by saying, ‘They are for dreamers and their contemplation benefits the soul. Indeed all who consider the shapes they see in them will save on psychoanalysis bills.’
