the end of today

By some provident miracle, my class let out 15 minutes early tonight, allowing me to drive home during the most beautiful sunset I've noticed in a while.

I promised myself long ago never to photograph sunsets. But I'll tell you, this one had me tempted.

Not because it was so beautiful (I think they look that great a lot, and I fail to notice in my slumped state.)
But because of the way I felt when I looked at it.
The pink and orange beams seemed to shout as they left this valley, and the silhouetted cars passing a crowded intersection felt foreign and exciting. like a new adventure or something.

I mentioned my class got out early... well it was that fact as well as the fact that days are getting longer here that allowed for my serendipitous meeting with these; the last few shreds of another hard day.

and it got me thinking....

as the days slowly extend their capacity for light; so do I.

So when I got home, I decided to change my Sara Steele calendar a day early. 
March looks something like this: 



  1. Wanna know something? After I read that you weren't going to take pictures of sunsets I decided to try to do that as well. Sadly, I give into the temptation sometimes, HOWEVER I think about you every time I see a beautiful sunset!!

  2. i loved the sunset today. and since it is me i wanted to photograph it, but i didn't have a camera. but boy it is a gorgeous memory!

  3. i love sunsets so much. and sunrises! in the summer when I have to wake up for work at 5:30 AM (I know), I always get to drive just as the sun is rising. It makes the early how so worth it!


What do you think of what I think?
