Go With the Flow!

I took my son and his friend to the park about a week ago, bringing my trusty camera to occupy myself. The sky was a beautiful cerulean blue and the clouds casually drifted by. They were wispy and delicate. They eventually created a scene that stretched across the atmosphere.

I instantly saw a women, arms stretched out, as if she were leaping into the air. The cloud beneath looked like water splashing; perhaps she was leaping into the raging water. Taunting the waves to carry her away, not fearing the rapids that may shove and toss her.

It’s a wild ride but instead of fighting the currents, she jumps in with open arms. A free spirit. The waters, whether rough or calm, do not change who she is. She will always dive in and let them carry her to her next destination.

Sometimes life can be tranquil and easy going. We can drift down the river without effort. There are other times though, when the waters get rough. It tosses and crashes and splashes us all around. Do not fight it, do not fear it. Let it carry you, regardless of how treacherous it looks. No matter how fast it takes you. Keep going with the flow and you will have the power to erode any obstacle in your path. Perhaps this was my spirit guide encouraging me to jump into the rapids and let them carry me to where I am suppose to be.

I loved creating an image from what I saw in the clouds. I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time and I finally decided to do it. The instant tale that popped into my head when I saw these clouds was worth sharing. I hoped you enjoyed it!

What do you see in the clouds? Have you seen any cool formations lately? Share a comment or photo below! Thanks for reading!

Until next time,

“Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”

It also reminded me of a scene in “The Little Mermaid“. 😛

  1. I see, especially after your drawing, a mermaid. Research mermaid symbolism. I also see immediately , two sea birds at the bottom of her left, (but right side of photo) arm. Symbolizing that we are NEVER alone, no matter how much we feel we are. “Glow with the flow” is something I’ve been telling myself a lot. It feels so good, especially when the feeling is accompanied by the gentle splash of the healing waters!!!

    1. That’s awesome! It didn’t dawn on me until you said it but it does look like a mermaid! Even in my sketch. There were no feet and I made note of that. I just turned it into a long gown but the mermaid is spot on! It’s amazing the symbolism that’s here!! Thank you for sharing! “Go with the flow” is one of our family mottos so it’s cool that you have a related phrase.
