“In the Clouds”

Cloudy days can make the world seem darker and duller. However, I have witnessed the vibrancy that cloud cover brings having lived in the pacific northwest for 15 years now. The dim and subtly changing light illuminates the earth in unexpected ways, creating forms and shapes not visible on a sunny day. Without the high contrast of full sunlight, objects, land, sea and sky bleed into each other, creating unnamable space, where ones’ mind can roam without constraints. This space has become for me not only quiet and reflective, but ethereal.
