“The sky is always there for me as my life has been going through many, many changes. When I look up at the sky, it gives me a nice feeling, like looking at an old friend.”   ~ Yoko Ono

With each passing year, I find myself more taken with natural phenomena while less impressed with material indicators of wealth many in modern society associate with success — McMansions, diamonds, exclusive club memberships, you get the idea.

Frankly, those sorts of possessions have never impressed me anyway.

If money were no object, I’d travel more and build a house exactly to my liking directly on the water.

I’d go hear more live music and probably spend more on higher quality cookware and instruments, but I live in a beautiful place and stand in awe regularly as I gaze out over the Atlantic at the vast sky that shifts throughout the day.

Clouds mesmerize me and take on a persona all their own, bewildering yet comforting at the same time, a reminder that I have everything I could possibly desire.

This post is a response to the Daily Prompt.

  1. Your post just made me think that what is so neat about clouds to me is that they are non-judgemental and always there. I really like the quote that you began your post with. So true that they are there through every age and stage of life! Thanks for that epiphany today.

    1. I’ve been known to take liberty with words. I blame it on growing up with an English teacher mother who was quite the stickler — turned me into quite the rebel. Ha! On the flip side… her particularness (there’s another one that’s likely made up) and encouragement has a lot to do with my love and understanding of language. Thanks for reading!


  2. Finally got round here – sorry it took so long! I love the Yoko Ono quote, I love how you express yourself and applaud your choice of responding to the Daily Prompt! Reading this makes me want to gaze at the sky more often – especially at night, sunrise & sunset! Xo
