Autumn Sunsets

Last week I wrote about the beauty of autumn.  It continues...

During this last week we experienced some of the most incredible sunsets ever!  The colors were rich and bold.  In the summer we have gorgeous sunsets, but the colors are lighter, more passive.  This week the colors were vibrant!

Where I live, we use daylight savings time.  In the autumn, we turn the clocks back one hour.  So if it was 6:00 for example, now it would be 5:00.  Consequently it now gets dusky at around 5:00 PM.

In the summer, people go out of their way to go watch the sunsets.  They'll go out to the peninsula just to sit and enjoy the "show".  But this time of year the sunsets happen when people are getting out of work at 5:00.  As they're rushing to get home - or where ever else - I have to wonder if they even see this fantastic free show.

It's so sad.  Again, there is so much beauty all around us.  And it's there for everyone.  It doesn't matter if you only have a dime in your pocket or if you're a millionaire.  Please, please, please open your eyes and hearts.  Look and see the absolute beauty that surrounds us all.  We are so fortunate.  We've been given so much.  My wish is for everyone to open up to see, appreciate and be grateful for all of it.

Love,  Paula
