Ah, the joys of summer! This sunset painting was inspired by how eagerly it is awaited when the temperature in Raleigh is in the mid 90s. Sweet relief!

On a more serious note, where are you when the sun goes down? Wrapping up outdoor chores? Driving home after a long day? Heading out into the new night, looking for magic? Waiting for your mother’s call when the streetlights start to come on?

When the night returns just like a friend

When the evening comes to set me free

When the quiet hours that wait beyond the day make

Peaceful sounds in me…

How many more sunsets do you get? Not how may days, but how many sunsets? How many will you actually take the time to watch? 10? 50? 100?


Pay attention! Enjoy the sunset.
