Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. -Rabindranath Tagore
When we travel to the beach, my favorite part of the day is at the end. I love to be at the edge of the shore and stand rapt at the emerging colors of the sunset. Oranges and reds and blues and yellows all merged into one spectacular living work of art. It pauses for only moments, changing, and rearranging the depths of fire in the sky until all at once, it fades into nothing and drops into the Sea.
Here, I stood at the edge of the sand along the Italian Maremma, with my toes in the Mediterranean Sea. In perfect timing, two fishermen rowed out and retrieved their catch at the peak of the color. Truly, at times like that, my soul sings because of the beauty.
Have you seen a sunset that has lingered in your memory? Where were you? How did the scene make you feel?
