“Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting.” – Richard Paul Evans
On a quiet sultry August evening as the sun was setting -- fittingly known as the "the golden hour" -- I happened upon the dramatic colorworks unfolding in the skies across the street from where I live.
“Sunsets are just little glimpses of the Golden streets of Heaven.” ― Unknown
Never one to miss a photo opportunity, I hurredly opened the camera on my smartphone and began clicking images of the sunset time lapse as the sun danced away into the evening forest.
“Sunset is still my favorite color, and rainbow is second.” – Mattie Stepanek
With her infinite box of colors, Nature paints a new canvas at every sunset, every sunrise and throughout the day.
“Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. It’s the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. Joy comes in sips, not gulps.” – Sharon Draper
Truer words were never spoken...
When I was a little child, my joy was found in a Hershey's candy bar, a stick of pink cotton candy and an Dairy Queen ice cream cone. But as I got older, life presented unpleasantries and joy no longer was a daily or even weekly experience. I learned to sip and savor moments of joy as they happened with less and less frequency.
With age comes wisdom and nowadays I find my joy with something as simple as appreciating sips of beauty found in Nature.
