    I had no idea that such a society existed,like you Margaret I am a cloud watcher,especially just before sunset when I sit gazing out of my upstairs window at what I call “the theatre in the sky”.The infinite variety of shapes and forms is amazing.Having once lived in Australia where unbroken blue skies are the norm I apprecaite the clouds even more in my own land.

    They’re both transient, so we must enjoy them while we can – a metaphor for life, I suppose. I hadn’t heard of the Dragonfly Society – thanks!

    Do you know these lines by Robert Burns from Tam O’Shanter?

    … But pleasures are like poppies spread –
    You seize the flow’r, its bloom is shed;
    Or like the snow falls in the river –
    A moment white, then melts for ever;
    Or like the borealis race,
    That flit ere you can point their place;
    Or, like the rainbow’s lovely form
    Evanishing amid the storm…
