Reflections and clouds

Cloud albedo: A measure of the reflectivity of a cloud - higher values mean that the cloud can reflect more solar radiation. – Wikipedia

What would it be like to ride these clouds? A rollercoaster? A parasail? Or soft, airy, like feathers? Would they loop you around and back, or send you to some new place? Which would you choose?
And how do you reflect on the reflections of clouds?

We'd never know how high we are,
till we are called to rise;
and then, if we are true to plan,
our statures touch the sky.
-- Emily Dickinson

Study without reflection is a waste of time; reflection without study is dangerous.
-- Confucius
