|Clouds Above the Alpine Tundra, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado |

If you read science or science fiction, you are probably familiar with black holes (which swallow-up everything near it) and wormholes (which transport you to other places and times). While ambling aimlessly on the alpine tundra one day, some 12,000 feet above sea level, I happened to spot this cloud formation that reminded me of a doughnut hole.
Just at that moment, I was mentally transported to a brightly colored doughnut shop where I swallowed-up half a dozen freshly baked doughnuts! It was delicious! It was delightful! I was delirious!
When I snapped-out of my daydream, I thought to myself sadly, "Oh, if only my dream was true! But, alas, there are no doughnut shops on the tundra."
