Sometimes clouds add an awesome dimension. Here in this landscape created by beavers, herons rear their young, while birds sing, frogs croak, and humans, if they are lucky enough to encounter this world,  rediscover wonder.  Biologist E. O. Wilson coined the word “biophilia’ to express the idea that “we have a deep human need to connect with nature” (from “The Word”, from Globe columnist Erin McKean). Magical natural places like this and in cultivated designed landscapes we humans connect to our ability to wonder and that refreshes our better selves I think.
