How is your radical self-care going? Are you drinking water? Going for 30 min walks? Are you setting and keeping healthy boundaries? What about taking time to stay connected with others?
Each month we take a minute to learn new tools to keep our sanity and peace. Tools that we can pass on to others will enrich their lives. This month we are going to take a different approach with our radical self-care and simply look up.
Cloudy with a Chance of Joy
Speaker: Gavin Pretor-Pinney · Cloudspotter
Cloud Appreciation Society founder Gavin Pretor-Pinney shows how seemingly idle pursuits provide unexpected paths to appreciating overlooked wonders.
Why you should listen
As co-founder of The Idler magazine, Gavin Pretor-Pinney is a longtime advocate of the joys of time ill-spent. In The Cloudspotter’s Guide and The Cloud Collector’s Handbook, he tackles the idlest pursuit of all: cloud-watching.
Pretor-Pinney’s blend of tranquil appreciation and hard science have floated his cloud books to the top of bestseller lists. For Pretor-Pinney, clouds illustrate how mundane phenomena reveal the complex vectors that connect the natural wonders around us. Pretor-Pinney is also the author of The Wavewatcher’s Companion.
What Others Say
“The U.K. Cloud Appreciation Society grew out of a talk on clouds Mr. Pretor-Pinney delivered to a literary festival in 2004. To attract attendees, he invented a whimsical title: the Inaugural Lecture of the Cloud Appreciation Society. To his surprise, several people asked to join. The society was born.” — Gautam Naik, Wall Street Journal
