Tonight’s sunset was a moment of wonder. Taking advantage of the warm temperatures, I was out running errands. There was one more stop before home. I looked at the sky to the east while watching traffic and saw pink, dark blue, and gray clouds. Turning my head, it looked like the western horizon was on fire: candle flame yellow, tangerine orange, rose petal pink, stormy seas dark blue, and purple like the flowers in the picture at top. Waves of color were woven across the sky from west to east. I was in awe. I wanted to say “Stop. Please. Let me get to an open place and out of my car so I can soak it in.” By the time I reached home, it was dark. I was so captivated by the sunset, I forgot the last stop. I unloaded the car and went back out.
I have been taking a few days off running. I irritated my sinuses on Tuesday’s cold and windy run. I went running on Wednesday. Thursday morning, though, I woke up with annoyed sinuses, watery eyes, and low energy. I figured it was time to give my body a little time to recuperate. I feel pretty good today and plan to resume running tomorrow.
Take care and thanks for reading.
