The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was, well, super. The clouds played just perfectly with the setting orb making the world a spectacular light show for only a moment or two. It was enough. Soon after it was night.
As I drove and the skies went through their nightly transitions I thought for a while about transitions.
The idea of night to day and day to night is easy. It is apparent and evident as it happens. A lot of transitions happen so slowly we do not see them. Age comes to mind as I still see myself at 18, and when I look in the mirror sometimes I feel more like 188. Well, maybe 187. Where did this transition happen that took away my youth or masked it under layers of oldish skin Have I transitioned at all since I still feel 18? Will there be more time for time?
It is a good question. I know some of my readers are young, and some not so young, but as I sit here thinking about it all for a moment, is that transition even important? I am still me, right?
How about you? Have you gone through any transitions you seem to have missed? A few week period that seemed to fly by? A school year that evaporated into the ether. (The ether bunny might be there) Something else?
All I can say is its ok. Yes, OK to see these transitions or miss them. I like to think I was so busy having fun the world just passed around me. Perhaps it is why I feel so young inside. Perhaps it is why I still play, and laugh and love with all that I am.
So as the sun sets on another day, wow it got dark quick. I hope you saw it coming and turned on the lights. While you are there, enjoy your time and every moment, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, enjoy the sunset, then watch the stars…
