Day 2554: Clouds

While I’ve been in the clouds about my December 27th wedding to Michael, I’ve also been noticing clouds, including these: What do those clouds look like to you? Do you see a unicorn? a dragon? a face? hope? threats? something else? What does this look like to you? Some people have been like dark clouds […]
