Cottony Clouds over my Paradisaical Workplace

While out on my morning walk/jog, I chanced on this view and couldn’t help but marvel at the cloud-filled sky.

Usually, our skies are just shades of blue with a scattering of cottony clouds here and there.

Here’s a zoomed-in shot.

I actually had to wade into the waters to take the above, but I had no regrets.  The scenery looked so pretty!  I even stopped my morning routine and just lounged around while enjoying the serene views.

This one’s taken on the roadway fronting Galapagos Beach.  The clouds here weren’t so defined, but I loved how the palm trees reflected on the still lagoon waters.

On my way back to my room, my view of a cloud-filled sky was just as pronounced from the back lobby.

I know what you want me to be,
and I’m not there yet,
but I find it so touching
that you think that’s a beautiful thing.
We’re all a work in progress,” you say,
and I’d love to be the one
who’s with you as you grow,
as you live and learn
and celebrate the person
that you were, are, and will be.”
And I just want to thank you
for the inspiration and love.
It sure is uplifting to have someone
who wants me as I am
while unfailingly believing
in the person that I could become.
