Perhaps it is the nature of these irreplaceable moments, their unique grace, that requires I treasure a cloud's light. Whether beneath us, in the midst, or above, clouds are not only to journey with, but also represent the unrestrained freedom of our natural world, a freedom we often fail to achieve as we scurry about with small ambition far below.
