Clouds and More

Clouds ...
an ocean in the sky.

The clouds bring
rivers ...

... and lakes.

The clouds,
the earth, the sea
and sky
become an endless loop.

There are ways but the Way is uncharted;
There are names but not nature in words:
Nameless indeed is the source of creation
But things have a mother and she has a name.
(first verse of Tao Te Ching by Raymond B. Blakney)

I used the top picture of the river as my desktop picture, looks beautiful.

Thanks. I'm not sure what the river or valley is. It is in Washington State, and I believe I was on the way to Mt. St. Helens when I took it.
