Courtney's comments:
To me the skies are infinitely inspiring. As a photographer, skies are my favorite subject. I am always in awe of a beautiful sky, any time of day, any time of year, and in any kind of weather. In Hawaiian culture, clouds also symbolize thoughts and by that this proverb also means that the answers can be found within ourselves.
