The job of a cloud counter is not easy. Clouds change their shape at every moment, constantly joining, separating, appearing and then vanishing into thin air. Cloud counters can never reach a definitive or final result, and theirs is a frustrating job with few satisfactions.
Also note counters have more or less the same difficulty. The more they worry and scurry to anticipate, calculate, and create their structures, the more the nature of music eludes them.
