A Happy Pessimist Floating On The Clouds

Scroll down to content

A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them.

Leonard Louis Levinson

On what was probably the last kayak ride of the year with a chance of snow expected this weekend, my eyes were drawn to the beautiful clouds in the sky and their reflection on the water. As a happy pessimist, I was captivated by the dark clouds reflecting on the water while floating on the clouds.

  1. Moping is in the next post I’ve written! Happy pessimism – I like that – I aim for optimism, but happy pessimist is often what I am…
    Lovely photographs, and maybe the snow will hold off and you’ll get a chance for one more paddle? (Look at that, aiming for optimism – but you’ll probably get snow!)

    1. As a happy pessimist who knows it is only going to be rainy and cold this weekend, I’m looking forward to your optimist post on moping because it will have something to cheer me up and provide a laugh. I’m glad you liked the post and keep aiming for optimism.
