I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now

My brother sent me a picture of a cloud the other day. The towering formation in the image looked familiar to me. I’d seen it before, but where? I’d never been to the place where the picture was taken, but it felt like I had.

In this picture, it’s the type of cloud that forms in tropics. Hot mornings, high energy, bright sun, and feeling that the sky is pregnant. An afternoon thunderstorm will come and go. I could feel the humidity, the Kikuyu grass under my feet, and hear the birds and the wind.

It’s incredible to me how a picture of clouds has the same effect as smell or listening to an old song. Memories were triggered as my brain dug deep and took me on a magical journey, all while looking at my phone.

p.s. I wrote this post with a couple of people in mind. I hope you are smiling and nodding as you read this.
