At the end of the day

I’ve always appreciated a good sunset. I’ve even written about them in this space. But last night’s offering was perhaps the most spectacular one that I’ve ever seen. It demanded my attention, and so I pulled off the road near a closed cemetery gate and tried to do it justice with my cameraphone. I failed miserably, but the pictures turned out pretty well, anyway.

Watching the colors exploding across the sky made me feel very fortunate. Nature was bringing its A-game, creating a scene that no human artist could ever match. And all we had to do was stop for a moment and appreciate it.

Everyone didn’t get the same sunset that I did last night. But everyone will get one just as vibrant and colorful, eventually. And when that happens, hopefully you’ll get the chance to enjoy it, the way that I enjoyed mine.
