The Sky

Hoisington, Kansas // Sam I Am I Do

Hoisington, Kansas from Best Made Co.

Freshman year of college, we asked our drawing professor Yoonmi Nam what she missed about South Korea.  I don’t remember her reply.  Then we asked her what she liked about Kansas.  And she said this:

The sky.  There are no obstacles blocking the expanse.  You can see all of it.

Being born and raised in Kansas and honestly not exploring much else at that point, I was caught off guard.  I had never really acknowledged the sky.  Five years later, I moved to New York, and it was one of the first things I missed.  These immense, powerful, billowing clouds emerging from nowhere, dictating the day.  I still miss the sky, and especially the thunder storms.  They just aren’t the same here.  So, I was excited to see this photo of Hoisington, Kansas on Best Made Co.’s Adventure Series.  Check out the entire photo story here.
