"I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall.
I really don't know clouds at all."
- Joni Mitchell



Double Rainbow Chasing  2012
© Joy Krauthammer



A rainbow is a reminder of the covenant that G*d made with Noah, his descendants, and all living creatures. 
Seeing a rainbow in the sky, we recite the following blessing:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֶלוֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם זוֹכֵר הַבְּרִית וְנֶאֱמָן בִּבְרִיתוֹ וְקַיָם בְּמַאֲמָרוֹ

Hebrew transliteration of BlesSing for a rainbow:

Barukh Ata Adonai, Elokeynu Melekh ha'Olam
zo'khair ha'brit, v'ne'eman biv'rito v'kayam b'ma'amaro.  
 'Praised are you, G*d, ruler of the world, who remembers the covenant, 
is faithful to the covenant and keeps promises.' 
or

'Holy One of blesSing, Your Presence fills creation,
You remember Your covenant with all that You created.'

Sunset shots with telephone poles
Following a museum Persian exhibit visit, and then a friend's themed Persian feast, 
driving home North on the 405 freeway I was thrilled to see clouds radiating above from the setting sun.
I then drove 118 freeway West getting closer to the sunset, excited, I exited the freeway, drove to higher ground, missed the original miracle, made illegal U Turns, looked for where to park, parked, then drove and found another better place to park 
(begging for the hot scene not to disappear)
stood higher on my car to photograph, walked through grass and also pointed my camera zoom lens through a security gated fence with NO Trespassing signs
and shot the following photos, while birds flew past the setting sun.
I love the stark imposing massive masculine repetitive geometry of the lines against G*d's intense sunset.

הַשָּׁמַיִם מְסַפְּרִים כְּבוֹד אֵ-ל וּמַעֲשֵׂה יָדָיו מַגִּיד הָרָקִיע

"The heavens declare the glory of G*d, and the firmament showeth G*d's handiwork."  -Psalms 19:2

Shine a new light upon Zion, that we all may swiftly merit its radiance.
Praised are You, Adonai, Creator of all heavenly lights.

Or chadash al Tzion tair,  v’nizkeh chulanu m’heirah l’oro.

Baruch atah, Adonai, yotzeir ham’orot.

.אוֹר חָדָשׁ עַל צִיּוֹן תָּאִיר וְנִזְכֶּה כֻלָּֽנוּ מְהֵרָה לְאוֹרוֹ.  בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ יוֹצֵר הַמְּאוֹרוֹת

Each morning I say my prayer of gratitude, Modah Ani, either while still in bed or go outside in all seasons, facing Jerusalem, to bring up the sun with prayers. I receive the most magnificent gifts.

Hebrew: מוֹדֶה (מוֹדָה) אֲנִי לְפָנֶֽיךָ מֶֽלֶךְ חַי וְקַיָּים. שֶׁהֶֽחֱזַֽרְתָּ בִּי נִשְׁמָתִי בְחֶמְלָה. רַבָּה אֱמֽוּנָתֶֽךָ׃

  • Translation: Modah (modeh) ani lifanekha melekh ḥai v'kayam sheheḥezarta bi nishmahti b'ḥemlah, rabah emunatekha.
  • Translation: I offer thanks before you, living and eternal Source of Life, for You have mercifully restored my soul within me; Your faithfulness is great.

  • Lamentations states that "The Lord's mercies are not consumed, surely His compassions do not fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness" (Lam. 3:22-23. From this, the Shulchan Aruch deduces that every morning, G*d renews every person as a new creation. (Ch. 1, 2.) For this, it is taught that one should thank G*d, and that is the purpose of the Modeh Ani.
The tradition to recite Modeh Ani upon waking grew up after the Talmud. In Talmudic times, upon waking, Jews traditionally said the prayer: 
Elohai Neshamah: "My G*d, the soul that You have placed in me is pure." (Berakhot 60b.). This prayer has been moved to the morning prayers.   from Wiki.

 Seeing Through The Clouds 

CLOUDS
G*d's Presence and Guidance


Long journeys, short journeys. Why are we here?
 But all of time is real; every moment is crucial. Every segment of our lives, no matter how fleeting or temporary, has a center, a purpose, an objective.  - Yank Tauber, Chabad

"On the day the Tabernacle was erected, the cloud covered the Tabernacle."
Torah Parsha Beha'alotecha.  Numbers 9:15

"From then on it remained that way," the Torah continues.

 "The cloud would cover it [by day] and a glow of fire by night."

Parshat Perudei 7th Aliyah
When Moses finished this task, a Cloud of Glory and the Divine Presence filled the Tabernacle. This cloud also served as the Jews' guide throughout their desert sojourn: when the cloud lifted, the people would travel, following the cloud until it rested, where they would set up camp until the cloud would lift again.

When Moses finished the work, the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and God’s Presence filled the Tabernacle. (Exodus 40:33–34.) When the cloud lifted from the Tabernacle, the Israelites would set out, and when the cloud did not lift, they would not set out. (Exodus 40:35–37.) And God’s cloud rested over the Tabernacle by day, and fire would appear in it by night, throughout the Israelites’ journeys. (Exodus 40:38.)
 Shemot

34 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of meeting, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
36 And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward, throughout all their journeys.
37 But if the cloud was not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
38 For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and there was fire therein by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.


                            The Dwelling Inhabited

לד  וַיְכַס הֶעָנָן, אֶת-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וּכְבוֹד יְהוָה, מָלֵא אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן.
Exodus 40:34
(On the day when the Tabernacle was erected, as it says,) 
And the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of G-d filled the Tabernacle... (Midrash Rabbah)
When the cloud was taken up from over the Tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: but if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
For the cloud of G-d was upon the Tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.

And Moses was not able to enter the Tent of Meeting, because the cloud rested on it, and the glory of G-d filled the Tabernacle (40:35)

Rav Zerika raised the following contradiction: 
One verse reads, "And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of meeting because the cloud rested on it," whereas another verse (Exodus 24:18) says: "And Moses entered into the midst of the cloud"? This is to tell us that the G-d took hold of Moses and brought him into the cloud.  (Talmud, Yoma 4b).

Deep teachings and thoughts shared
BeRahamim LeHayyim: Sefer Af-Yashiru for Vayetzie Monday
Avim / Thick clouds

 סֵפֶר אַף-יָשִׁירוּ
Today we continue our study of Chapter II of פֶרֶק שִרָה Perek Shirah, the "Chapter of Song," the song sung by the eighty five components of Creation.
The  thick clouds (עָבִים) says

יָשֶׁת חֹשֶׁךְ, סִתְרוֹ-- סְבִיבוֹתָיו סֻכָּתוֹ;
חֶשְׁכַת-מַיִם, עָבֵי שְׁחָקִים.
12 He made darkness His hiding-place, His pavilion round about Him;
darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies
 Remez: 
עָבֵי   hints to the Name Av עב     יוד   הי   ויו   הי  , which is gematria 72, that of Chesed.
The thick clouds conceal G-d's kindness, soon to be revealed with the life-giving rain, as water relates to Kindness in that it will always seek the lowest point.
More so, the Name Av  יוד הי ויו הי   relates to Chochmah, which is concealed in Binah, as they are the two friends which never part, the letters Yod and Heh of Hashem.   Av too is Supernal Abba, who bonds with Supernal Imma.

Derosh:
R. Slifkin:  Darkness hides salvation,  A cloudy sky is gray and gloomy, for when the sun is blotted out, we can feel that life is dark and depressing.  This is misplaced, for the dark clouds are harbingers of the life-giving rain.  Dark clouds absorb more water and are ready to burst into rain.  G-d's redemption is also hidden by clouds and brought about by clouds.   At the end of days when we merit the final redemption, we will see how all gloomy periods of history were actually harbingers of the redemption.
Secret:
He made darkness His hiding-place [the Ayn Sof] , His pavilion round about Him; darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies [Netzach and Hod]
  
Zohar
Pinchas 225:
And there is no light that can withstand His radiance without appearing dark, even upper Keter, whose light is stronger than all of the levels and all the hosts of the upper and lower heavens, and it is said about Him,: "He made darkness His secret place" (Tehilim 18:12). Concerning Chochmah and Binah, "cloud and mist are round about Him" (Tehilim 97.2) How much more is it so for the other Sefirot and for the celestial beings, and the elements that are dead. He surrounds all the worlds, and none but He surrounds them in any direction, up or down or to the four corners of the compass, and no one has left His domain for the outside, for He fills all the worlds and there is no other that fills them.

The darkest hour is before the dawn.
There is hope, even in the worst of circumstances.
Rebbe Nachman would say:
   'אין ייאוש בעולם כלל

Ein ye'ush ba'olam klal.
There is no despair in the world!  (Likutey Moharan Tinyana 78) This is what the dark clouds teach.
That in the darkest time, we need to know that G-d is hiding there, seeking you to seek Him.

Equivalents In 1922 Alfred Stieglitz wrote:
"Clouds and their relationships to the rest of the world, and clouds for themselves, interested me, and clouds which were difficult to photograph -- nearly impossible. Ever since then clouds have been in my mind most powerfully at times... I always watched clouds. Studied them. ...clouds to put down my philosophy of life -- to show that my photographs were not due to subject matter -- not to special trees, or face, or interiors, to special privileges, clouds were there for everyone -- no tax as yet on them -- free.
After 1922 Stieglitz described his cloud photograph as Equivalents. "My cloud photographs are equivalents of my most profound life experience, my basic philosophy of life."
