why uncloudy?

There's an old gospel song by Willie Nelson called "Uncloudy Day" that instantly puts me in a good mood. I heard the song for the first time in passing but it stuck with me. I found myself humming it and thinking about it at the most random times. In hindsight they really weren't random times, they were times when I wanted to be somewhere else, doing something else, being someone else... So I searched it out and put in on my "theme song" mix. This was pre-iPod, long before smart phones. It may have even been on a cassette tape (am I dating myself?). The point is, it made me feel better. It inspired me. It made me sing, it made me turn the volume up and roll down the window. It made me certain that there were better times ahead, that there was a place in my future that was "uncloudy" and that I was going to get there. And I am, I'm getting there. In fact, I must say I'm closer than I've ever been.
