Fade Away


I love light. My wife will often say “we don’t need all the lights on”! I quickly check the basement, garage,  and closets and reply “I turned some off”! It has been suggested that I do not drive during sunsets and rises as I tend to “sky gaze” a bit. Country living has it’s advantages as most people have four wheel drive in northern Minnesota. They can usually drive out of the ditch or wait for the next 4×4 with a tow rope after avoiding me (sorry about that Al).

This evening I caught a few crappies while watching the clouds dance and churn and part the light spectrum.  My little world bumped against centuries of this precisely executed fade away. I guess I’m allowed one deeper thought while I just enjoy being caught up in the moment. I do know that I am at peace with myself, God and the universe when on  a quiet lake watching the colors act out and fade away. Time stops and even Al is not mad at me anymore.

As I get older, I want to show some color before I, too, someday,  fade away.

PS: Do I need to explain about Al or can we just leave it alone?
What does a sunset do to you?
