What's outside the window?

This week's theme is 'What's outside the window?'. My response rather surprised me as I wanted a really pretty framed scene yet settled upon this slightly moody, simple shot of what I see if I look up out of my living room window. But you see, this photo speaks volumes about my week so far. 

I need to look up. Stop  getting absolutely buried in the detail. 
(Oh my, I have been swamped.) 
I need clarity. Simple lines.  
I need air. Space.
I need that cheeky glimpse of sunshine peeking through the clouds. 

I found this beautiful quote, which also felt quite apt, as it makes me want to look up often:

The sky is that beautiful old parchment 
in which the sun and the moon 
keep their diary. 
 ~Alfred Kreymborg

I love this photo. It does, indeed, speak volumns. It suggests daydreaming.
