last night


One of the most satisfying experiences I know is fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset...I don't find myself saying, 'Soften the orange a little more on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base, and use a little more pink in the cloud color...' I don't try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds.   

--Carl R. Rogers



just in case you missed it
straight out of the camera
no enhancing
still doesn't even come close
to capture the splendor
filling the western sky

Peace...is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank.  unknown

'goodness everywhere' is the one I love. It truly is all around us every day.

Thanks for posting this. We don't even come close to getting sunsets like that in Chicago!

I noticed those beautiful sunsets this week also. Hey, I finally had to break down and respond to your blog when I found out that I have another friend that loves Nat King Cole.
