With Enthusiasm!

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.  
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

You are probably wondering what the title of this post, the quote, and the clouds have to do with each other.  Well..... as I was walking along one of my favorite trails I saw these clouds and I thought to myself ... "those clouds look like an exclamation point".  (you have to use your imagination a bit) You see, I have a "thing" for exclamation points.  If you have a blog and I've commented on it - you know that I am VERY GENEROUS with my exclamation points.  I don't think of them as a "shouting" mark but as a mark to get my point across that I am enthusiastic about something.  So I kept thinking to myself ... should I post this, will my readers see it as I do, or am I just being fanciful.  In the end, I kept coming back to the pic ..... and it won the battle waging in my mind!  Now tell me..... do you see it?

I especially like the theory of it's origin :)

I see a tiny little exclamation point but what I really see is a quarterback who is about to throw the football. But that's just me!

Love it!!!!! :) I see the exclamation point but the whole cloud structure looks like a person (although somewhat abstract) jumping for joy....
In our world of texting, emailing, etc, I think exclamation point add a little emotion..... I use them a lot as well!!!!
