I am looking out the window right now where we have an expansive view to the southwest. The sky is a fading puted peach with lots of violet in it, framed at the bottom by the branches of distant pine treets and above by wispy clouds that look like runny watercolor paint strokes. It's gorgeous. I've been watching birds land and take off from the snag in the creek bed. They are all in silhouette against the sky. So, so, nice!
