As I was brainstorming for a name for a client's new website, I received inspiration for this blog post. ( I am not a prolific writer and my style is short and sweet - my brain goes a mile a minute ~ the imagination runs wild....) He had a website by the name of New Cloud which was scooped up by vultures laying in wait for the domain's expiration for the purpose of selling it back to him at an extorted price. Time has passed and now with the advent of all the information technology speak re: 'Cloud', he really wanted this domain again.
CLOUD is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on how the Internet is depicted in computer network diagramsand is an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it conceals. - The Internet Cloud I now learned that it is an abstraction. How appropriate. I then was inspired to think outside the box. Having been a student of Latin - not by choice - it was a requirement of all students to study the language for 2 years prior to choosing a romance language, in my case Italian. I do digress. Therefore, I decided to explore the latin nimbus = cloud; and here are my findings: Nimbus = Latin shi ning cloudor an aura atmosphere, dense clouds or cloud mass, any of a variety of bright circles or arcs centered on the sun or moon, caused by the refraction or reflection of light by ice crystals suspended in the earth's atmosphere and exhibiting
prismatic coloration ranging from red inside to blue outside (distinguished from
Wow, now, I 'm on to something. Something for my blog entry as it relates to abstract art. I also came up with a name for his new site and to my surprise, our son said " Mom, that's brilliant" He purchased the name and I have the email for posterity !!!!
I see some verses breaking through the clouds..... later .......

Martha Hull ~
One of the most persevering individuals that I have been privileged to know. I will not detail all the trials and tribulations that my childhood friend has had to endure. Just know that neither you, nor I would have wanted to travel in her shoes. She is a stellar example for me of one who loves life in spite of it all... Martha is generous and kindhearted. A single mother, a sister, a faithful friend, a diligent worker. She is a 'Talented Organizer' ~ call on her to de-clutter & reorganize your home, office, ............................ Martha is ACES !
Where in the world is Martha today ?!?
Thank you for allowing me to indulge myself in sharing this heartfelt sentiment with you. I am sure that we all have people in our lives whom we would want to thank for being there for us. In my way, I would like to think that I speak for all of us.
