- Understanding Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is difficult to understand, because it's up the individual or group to make it work for themselves despite a unique definition. Many people are using it daily, but have no idea how it works nor the full embrace of it's true powerful e
What do You See?
Do you see what I see?
I see an angel in each photo taken?
You see just a bunch of clouds?
We are just seeing clouds in the shapes of angels?
I just want to see what I am hoping to see?
We are just seeing a coincidence that the clouds are shaped like angels right at the precise moment the prayer vigil is taking place in Aurora?
It is just another coincidence that on another day, different clouds still appear to look like another angel?
I am crazy to even think such?
I just think these are cool photos either way?
You do not?
I am given a little hope in seeing these photos?
You are not.
It is true, that there are angels in these photos?
It is true, that there are no angels in these photos?
God placed those clouds there, at that very moment, not for us, but for those suffering?

The Most Famous Poem About a Cloud
That poem would be:
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
by William Wordsworth
"I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of dancing Daffodils:
Along the Lake, beneath the trees,
Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.
The waves beside them danced, but they
Outdid the sparkling waves in glee: -
A poet could not but be gay
In such a laughing company:
I gaz'd - and gaz'd - but little thought
What wealth the shew to me had brought:
For oft when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude,
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the Daffodils."
William Wordsworth Poems in two Volumes:
Moods of my Mind 7 (1807)
In 1815, Wordsworth revised the poem, replacing "dancing" with "golden"; "along" with "beside" and "ten thousand" with "fluttering and". Then, he added a stanza between the first and second, and changed "laughing" to "jocund". The last stanza was not touched.

The Different Types of Clouds
There are three main types of clouds found in the sky; however, they have many derivatives.
Cumulus clouds are white and fluffy, like cotton balls.
Stratus clouds are flattened sheets of cloud that may stay in place for some time.
Cirrus clouds form very high in the sky, and are made up completely of ice crystals. They are wispy and light; and look a bit like feathers in the sky.
