Moody Skies Over Hawaii

A  L  O  H  A !

" Adversity is like a strong wind.
 It tears away from us 
all but the things 
that cannot be torn, 
so that we see 
as we really are. "

Arthur Golden, 
Memoirs of a Geisha

" I'd like to just get 
one of those pink clouds 
and put you in it 
and push you around.  "

F. Scott Fitzgerald

" A cloudy day
 is no match 
sunny disposition.  "

William Arthur Ward

" Don't
 let one cloud 
obliterate the whole 
sky. "

Anais Nin

" O it is pleasant, 
with a heart at ease,
Just after sunset,
 or by moonlight skies,
To make the shifting clouds 
be what you please. "

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

It is delightful
when we drift
together like this -

I find much pleasure in drifting, and clouds and lovely sunsets and quieit sunrises and alone time to reflect!

Hey Cloudia -- Mahalo for the ride in the clouds; I like being pushed around in them. Better than being a Care Bear!
Aloha, DrumMajor

And, of course, every cloud has a silver lining! :)

Spectacular colours and wonderful quotes. I love that first image. Thanks for allowing me to do some cloud-watching.

A strong wind is one thing, but what if adversity is like Hurricane Katrina?

Cloudia said...

Glad you survived that big blow, Charles.

thanks, EACH of YOU

How many colours can the sky have.

I don't mind cloudy skies sometimes a cool dark day is a nice change in the heat of summer.
