Cloud 9 Comes At A Price


Last Night, Cloud 9 drifted above me. Kissing me... touching me, and wrapping its precipitation around me. The emotion was Cumulus in nature, scattered at first, then it shifted itself down to my spot, I cried at its beauty. I yelped at the cuming of the storm, and released as it parted so that I could see the sun again. As I wiped the water vapor from my body, I smiled and landed back on Earth. Meteorology had never been this spiritual.

Yet when the clouds come, so does the storm, and when it rains, it pours. I wasn't prepared, and not even an umbrella was on sale. Cause you see, Cloud 9 comes at a price. Cause while your floating, sometimes you lose focus. You name it, work, family, friends... everything seems to not matter. All you want to do is be high, on a high, but can I afford it?

This is my debt. Friends & Family feeling neglected.  Wanting to kiss him, but afraid someone may get jealous. Trying not to make anyone feel like a 3rd or 5th wheel. Wanting to share in my joy, when they can't share in my joy with me. What is a man to do when he is happy, and everyone around him isn't?

This weekend, I spent some time on Earth, really taking the time to show my appreciation for those that keep me grounded. It is with them that I have the "Down to Earth" nature the heavens so love about me. Then hopefully I can put a down payment on moving Heaven down to Earth, so that way, Cloud 9 can be something everyone can afford.

WHEN YOUR HAPPY,
WHAT IS THE BEST STIMULUS PACKAGE
FOR OTHERS THAT ARE NOT?

ShawnQt,
Man that was beautiful. I think instead of trying to hide your happiness from those around you who aren't, you have to like wear it everywhere you go and share it. This to me was an expression of your happiness, and although I don't know you, I'm now happier for you, and lol and feel a little happier myself.
Thank you! =)

The blog has not just a new look but a new feel ! Most excellent!

Now is your question really "does a tree that falls deep in the forest make a sound?"

In other words, if you are up on Cloud 9... do you know or care the happiness of those left behind?

Great writing... Wow...

even better question..wouldnt those around you want to share your joy of Cloud 9?
For if they dont share your joy.. why would you surround yourself with them?

you have always been a beacon of light for others. since way back when! people look at you and say they want to be like you because of your "energy"! :-) I've even said it a few times...

continue on in your happiness and you will find it trickles down like an overflow. it will start to grab onto those around you. wait and see!

Your loving and kind nature [from what I've read since discovering your blog] is the stimulus package. Your aura is contagious, spreading happiness and inspirations to others around you. To me at least.
