"Far clouds of feathery gold, shaded with deepest purple, gleam like islands on a dark blue sea."
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

I walked outside on July 10, 2012 at 4:27 p.m. to this vision. I stood beneath the sky, watchful as the clouds formed into stormy skies. Ominous weather was the forecast, but beauty was all around me. The sun is always shining somewhere, even on the darkest of days.
