Casper In The Clouds

But real life is only one kind of life—there is also the life of the imagination. 
~ E.B. White

As we were traveling along in the car near Suffolk, Virgina - I looked up and saw Casper in the Clouds.  Do you remember Casper the Friendly Ghost?  Do you see Casper when you look at this cloud?

E.B. White is one of my FAVORITE authors!  His Charlotte's Web was the book that started my life-long LOVE of reading.   Did you know that the EB stands for Elwyn Brooks? I didn't - but I think that is a LOVELY name :)

LOL!! Casper is EXACTLY what I thought of when I saw the thumbnail photo on the SkyWatch page! What a fun photo of a fun cloud!

Casper was one of my favorite cartoons and Charlotte's Web was also one of my favorite books. So to paraphrase Charlotte, "Some Cloud!" :-)

I looked at this picture, thought Casper - and then I read your post ;) As for the name Charlotte ... yes! there is a woman who blogs and YouTubes, named Charlotte (in fact, 9/7 was her wedding day!) and as a play on that name, her blog is http://alongcameaspydr.blogspot.com/

Yes it really looks like Casper! I remember all those wonderful old cartoons I grew up with. Thanks for your comment on my blog and for being my newest follower. I'm also following your blog now. Love your photos!

Great photos. ALWAYS! Did not know about the Elwyn Brooks! Your quotes are always inspiration. Thank you. For years I did not realize that EB White was the White in Strunk and White, Elements of Style. Used that a lot in college. I read aloud all of the EB White stories to my students, over and over, throughout the years. Love your blog!
