even a blue sky can be ironic!

A blue sky definitely is incredibly ironic on the very day that the Cloud Appreciation Society’s 10th anniversary conference takes place in London! (The very society that in its manifesto pledges to fight ‘blue-sky thinking’!)

The conference took place yesterday, 26 September, and I had the privilege of taking part. (I am member number 30,845! Total current membership is 39,055 – which means that if you join soon, you might well become member number 40,000!)

What the sky lacked, the ESCAPE TO THE CLOUDS conference gave in abundance! The speakers were fantastic (as was the venue, the Royal Geographical Society), the cloud shop was well stocked, there was a camera obscura aimed at the sky as well as a cabinet of cloud curiosities…

Oh, and there was even a weather-inspired shoe on display! (“Cloud and Rainbow High Heel” designed by Thea Cadabra in 1984)
