Chasing Sunsets

I went to a date on the beach last weekend. And we stayed there waiting for the sunset. It was cold and we were shivering wet but it was all worth it as we started seeing the sun kiss the night. I realised how long it had been since I last saw the sunsets and I feel like I have been too busy earning money that I forgot to appreciate all the beautiful and free things life can offer. When was your last sunset?

My last sunset on the water was on the river at the campground I consider my home away from home earlier this fall. I took several photos that evening and one heads up a post I made the other day. I love your photo on this post. It would make a great book cover.

It was beautiful. I had to look for it. Your photo was a lot better but I do like this photo too. My date took it candidly. Now I just need to write a book.

@flapiz It could be a story about a young woman for whom one stage of her life is ending and she's longing for the next to begin. How does the title, "After the Sun Sets" strike you.

@DWDavis That's a beautiful title. I hope this new chapter of my life is me being a permanent resident of this beautiful place.

Well, I could not remember when I last saw the sunset. Good for you, you have it just recently. Wish I could see it one of these days.

Oh wow a good couple of months ago, taking the real time to hear it sizzle when it hit the water out by our great lake Erie shores . . .

Hey Manisha well at least you remembered when your last sunset was. I guess it's now time to see more of Mr. Sun.

It was perfect. I could say it was my most favourite date. I could be alone and still say it was magnificent and breath taking.

Yes God is the most wonderful artist and nature is his big canvass. I am always grateful to be part of his creation.

The patio curtain is always open at that time so I see it daily. I also see the sunrise many mornings.

You are one lucky man. Sunsets have become a luxury for me since I almost always work the afternoons and on the next day I miss the sunrise because I was to exhausted from work.

You bring a very good point here. We all fail to appreciate nature. Some of us forget our homes in search of money. We need to come back to our senses

Hey there! Yep that's exactly what I felt. I became so aware of the disconnection we have for the world, society, and our families in the plight of trying to earn a living. It's very ironic how by earning a living we kind of forget how to really live.
