"Check out this phenomenon in Birmingham, AL today! This phenomenon is called Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds. A brief description from the Cloud Appreciation Society: "The breaking waveforms of Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds are the result of shearing winds up at cloud level. A particular type of turbulence can develop in a layer of cirrus cloud, which happens to form below an inversion …between air currents of differing speeds and/or directions. Sea waves break as their bases are slowed down upon reaching shallow water and their crests surge ahead. Cloud waves break in the same way: when their crests are pushed ahead of their troughs by the difference in air currents." (source)
Also, can we just appreciate that there is an organization called the Cloud Appreciation Society?

If only we could wake up each morning with that kind of excitement about anything.

Elizabeth Taylor was born with a mutation that caused double rows of eyelashes, which enhanced her appearance on camera. Gives a new meaning to “Maybe she’s born with it… maybe it’s Maybelline.”

Ed Cohen's NYT Op Ed piece about a love/hate relationship with Florence, Italy →

Cohen’s piece focuses specifically on air travel in Florence, but as much as he complains, he does say some pretty cute stuff about Italy! My faves:

"Don’t get me wrong. I love Italy. I lived here for a while and learned how beauty is the consolation of every past empire. I learned how style can be deployed as a shield against disappointment. I learned that change can be overrated."

"America acts in the belief that life is linear and leads to the realization of goals. Italy idles in the belief that life is circular and objectives an illusory distraction from pleasure."
