"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."
John Lubbock

"Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability." Sam Keen

Cloud watching is high on my list of ways to not waste time, along with reading, bird watching and gardening. What are your favorite ways to not waste time?

Those clouds are breathtaking. I like how you rounded the whole sky like a magnificent panorama. Very nicely done! Laziness becomes respectable... I like that!

Thanks Everyone.

Reading, walking and hiking with animals are excellent non-time-wasters.

Katherine, I like a little respectable laziness too.

Wahnsinnig schöne Farben und eine Landschaft zum Verlieben. Erinnert mich an ein Gemälde, ich glaub es heisst „Rainy Landscape“ von dem russischen Maler Kandansky http://WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWL66, welches ich auf WahooArt.com gesehen habe. Dort können Sie sich Gemälde drucken lassen oder auch handmalen lassen. Wirklich ein grossartiger Platz wo Sie die gleiche Art von Ihrem Gemälde finden können.

Thanks Scott. I love Kandinsky and Rainy Landscape is beautiful. WahooArt is a nice idea for those looking for reproductions instead of the one of a kind, contemporary, originals featured here.
