“Not in Utopia, -- subterranean fields, --
Or some secreted island, Heaven knows where!
But in the very world, which is the world
Of all of us, -- the place where in the end
We find our happiness, or not at all!”
William Wordsworth 1770-1850
The distant island below the dark clouds is the Hawaiian island of Kaho’olawe also known as the Target Isle. It was used by the U.S. military as a place to practice bombing and warfare from World War II to 1990.
