The cloud shapes seem almost organic, while the sparse shrubs on the plateau atop this stretch of the Cypress Hills seemed to mimic the cloud formation. Many humans down through the ages have yearned for the sky. It makes me wonder, a bit fancifully in the fall morning light… if the land itself could dream, would it ever dream of being sky?
