A friend of mine used this word the other day. It had such an exotic ring to it that I wrote it down and knew that when I was ready to share photos of the clouds that I saw on my trip, that this word would be perfect to use.
Nefelibata means "cloud walker". Someone who walks a different path is also another definition or someone who doesn't live a conventional life. Wow, I liked the first definition but all of them are "spot on".
The first photo of the road as I headed north was my trying to outrun a storm. The storm won. Luckily this trip there were no overturned trucks or any bad stuff........that I know of, anyway. I loved all the shapes and colors of these clouds. How menacing they were.
Lying on a float in the pool in Kingwood at my daughter's house, I was enchanted watching fluffy clouds moving between all the trees in that area. It is a soothing sight for me. How about you? Are you a cloud watcher or walker too?
ALWAYS in Galveston either on the Gulf side or the Bay side there are clouds to enjoy! This trip was no different. Magnificent.
Back in Houston a few days later, I certainly didn't want to walk on these clouds, but admit I was mesmerized by the intensity of the storm that was heading toward the downtown area from the west. I took this photo from the 19th floor of Bayou Bend Towers.
And, another view of another evening. I'm hooked on clouds. That's why the word Nefelibata is appropriate as a title for this post.
This trip seemed to be full of dark and also beautiful clouds. By the end though, the clouds were gone and brilliant sunshine followed me all the way home to San Miguel.
