Listening to cloud movements

Selling the farm: Allaman, Vaud, Switzerland. October 2006

On my "work" blog for the Tribune de Geneve online newspaper I wrote today about clouds, with a link to a good site that explains them (in French!), with photos. It's been cloud-minding weather. This time of year their busywork up in the sky is very distracting, but it should be: they are sweeping out one season and sweeping in another. It's a process very like cleaning out our garage. You can't do it in a day.

The clouds have kept me focused on the fact it is autumn. Signs are everywhere, even if it is warm outside and work goes on indoors, especially in front of computers, without regard for the season shifting. Here are a couple of the autumn treasures I've seen this week when I wandered outside.

Two-tone goats are a Valais specialty. These have been in a patch of sticky burrs.
