    Cloud Week and beautiful photos brought to mind a conversation between Jody and Fodder Wing in yet another favorite book of mine, “The Yearling” by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. Here goes as copied from Google:
    I guess near about everything
    would like to fly.
    :41:06
    Birds fly. Birds and angels.
    :41:10
    Do you know what the end
    of the world’s like?
    :41:14
    What?
    :41:15
    It’s empty and dark
    and only clouds to ride on.
    :41:20
    But the clouds is sunny and soft.
    :41:24
    You just float on them
    and go nowheres.
    :41:27
    And all the animals
    has little bright clouds to ride on.
    :41:31
    Racket’ll have a little one,
    just alongside of mine.
    :41:35
    And do you know what?
    Sometimes, as you’re drifting along…
    :41:39
    …you drift right inside
    another cloud.
    :41:42
    You’ll be on that one,
    and we’ll lie there and talk.
    :41:45
    Just like we’re talking now.
    And you know what, Jody?
    :41:49
    What?
    :41:51
    The clouds are really
    just the backs of angels…
    :41:54
    …who are flying around up there
    looking after things.
    :41:58
    They’ll look after you too, Jody,
    until you’re ready to fly.
    :42:04
    How do you know that?
    :42:08
    I just know.
    :42:11
    Could be.
    :42:16
    Yeah.
    :42:18
    Could be.
