A Love Affair

 It started out this way.... winter skies over the island of Oahu...the sun and clouds greet each other...  they sit down for a cup of coffee.....  They find the have a lot in common ...the sky a friend to them both.....  As time moves on.... sparks fly.... they get along so well....
