For me clouds symbolize freedom and limitation at the same time. Looking up at the clouds makes me feel incredibly small but also like I’m part of something much bigger. These expressions of the atmosphere’s mood, untouchable, high up in the sky. I want to materialize this ephemeral beauty into something I can touch, to make it my own.
Up and above, in a far away land, exploring an unreachable world, dreaming of landscapes and possibilities… unreachable but with imagination. So close yet so far: that’s where I want to go… To be among these ethereal, ephemeral entities. To touch them, to make them mine, to materialize them into my own imagined reality.
“A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them.” ~Leonard Louis Levinson
