day 12: kristy

so, this is one thing that puts living in maine, in perspective: the sun setting behind the orchard and white picket fence...it just happens to be the view from my window. almost everyday this portion of the sky behind the farm across the street is stained pink, blue and yellow with sun and clouds. my parents built this house while i was in college and i remember that they would go to the land as it was being built to watch the sun set and then send me pictures. when i would come home for a weekend, i would sit and watch it myself, the massive sky lit up with it's last dance of the day - each time, as beautiful as the last. it is at the top of my short list entitled "things-that-bring-me-to-my-knees".
