The Love of a Sunset

What can I say? Some evenings the mere glimpse of the sunset fills me with love, peace and a sense of joy. Tonight was no exception, the warm Michigan air seemed to help illuminate the emerging night sky.

As nature’s colors shined brightly through the treeline, I found myself transfixed. Yes, I still took over a hundred pictures of the sky and surrounding area. But for a moment, I just stood there. The moment was just magical. The fireflies flew about, the birds sang their chorus with the crickets and the frogs, and I just loved the moment.

With all the deadlines and hustle and bustle of the daily demands, taking the time to watch a sunset should be mandatory.

Until next time….peace

Lovely Summer Nights

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
John Muir

The weather has been absolutely lovely the last few days which gives me lots of time to be outdoors and enjoying nature. The lovely summer nights bring gorgeous sunsets and clear skies for star gazing.

Even though I have been spending a lot of time outdoors, I cannot really say that I have been getting any weeding done. I think some of my flower beds are taking on a mind of their own. The lawn is mowed which makes me content for now. The honeybees have been enjoying the extra wild flowers that seemed to have found their way into my yard. So, I tend to leave them for now.

I am just taking the time to enjoy every moment of this beautiful weather.
