Washed Clouds

Cloud of freshly washed bed sheetYou’re right. That’s only some freshly washed bed sheets that had dried in the  sun and just now have been taken down from the clothes line and dropped into a laundry basket.   There’s nothing quite so white as freshly washed bed sheets hung out to dry in blindingly bright sunshine. And, silly us, when we looked at the basket we thought it resembled a basket filled from one of those big white cumulus clouds that build up in the sky in August. OK, it’s just laundry. We admit it. And it doesn’t really look like a cumulus cloud. We admit that, too. We like it anyway. And it does look like clouds to us. Sort of.

More Notes

Tim Carmody, in his excellent piece, "How Haiti Became Poor", notes that President Trump's racist policies and vulgar language have sullied the word "shithole" which used to be one of the all-time great swear words. He's right. It's another terrible power this careless President wields.
