Now Showing: CLOUD APPRECIATION with Alyssa Baguss


When was the last time you showed a little appreciation for the clouds? Sure, you have your problem clouds now and then but most of the time they mind their own business, go with the flow and accept change with grace. No matter who you are or where you live, clouds are usually there. You've got clouds? Me too! - Alyssa Baguss 


Below is what you will need, a video of Alyssa drawing clouds as a how to make your own, and a little cloud inspiration.



  1. Go outside specifically to watch clouds.

  2. Find a comfortable place to rest and appreciate clouds: a bench in a park, lawn chair, picnic blanket.

  3. Chin up and eyes on the sky! Take it all in.

  4. Take a picture of a good looking cloud. Text the image to a friend #wow.

  5. Put your cell phone away.

  6. When you wonder if sitting alone looking at the sky makes you look strange, shake it off. If anyone has a problem with how you're appreciating clouds, this is their problem. Not yours.

  7. Pick one cloud that you like and watch it cross the entire sky from horizon to horizon.

  8. Notice how it changes shape and isn't the same cloud it used to be.

  9. If it completely disappears that's ok. Nothing lasts forever.

  10. Draw.
