After reading Clouds, I found the different meanings it’s had for humans in the past quite interesting. The clouds were used to suggest a whole host of meanings like supernatural forces, creation, fertility, and divine protection. I think my favorite symbolism of clouds is their impermanence. It’s enjoyed while you’re seeing it, and then it’s blown away to a different neighborhood for someone else to see. This was the meaning I got from Shelley’s poem from the end of the reading as well.
After looking at Magritte’s paintings, my favorite one is the eye. It suggests that we’re always looking up to the sky, whether it be in awe or looking to the divine for answers.
