Another warm day

It has been another warm day today. Even when I went outside before 7am to take a few photos the air felt warmer than it has for a while. Don’t be fooled by the clouds, I’m sure they just appeared to add interest to the early morning. By 8am, the sky was mostly blue.

The clouds looked so interesting that I decided to zoom in on them. When my current uni semester is over in five week’s time I’m thinking it would be interesting to learn more about the different cloud formations. I know they all mean something, just what though I really don’t know! All I know is that dark grey and black clouds signify rain, but I think most people know that.

After zooming in on the clouds I decided to get as close as I could to Mount Warning. According to Aboriginal legend, the shape of Mount Warning is the profile of the warrior chief of the mountain.

Going off-topic, I found some words recently from French philosopher and author Albert Camus, which I thought meaningful in these strange and unsettling Covid times, which I will share today –

“In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. 

In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.

In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.

I realised, through it all, that in the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy.

For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me,

there’s something stronger –

something better, pushing right back”.
