The Earth & The Heavens

The sky shines colorlessly, bright against the lavender hues fading and darkening along the eastern horizon. To the west the mountains absorb ambient light, becoming blue and purple shadows. They are hazy in the distance and appear to have been painted by a young artist still caught in the thralls of the flat, 2-dimensional realm of his canvas.

The colors of the Colorado landscape are so very different than those of Japan. Not nearly as deep and rich, but possessing a more ethereal quality.

And the space... it always seems so much more vast and overwhelming after having spent some time on an island that doesn't have much.

Somehow, I love both.
