Have you ever obsessed with something until it’s made you an official down-right-just-let-it-go-already-person in your own eyes and the eyes of others when you confess to the obsession?
‘Sunrise Sunset’ is about trying to get to a place where life is simple and not letting the stress and happenings in the world get in the way of your happiness. – Benny Cassette
Yesterday, as I was waiting patiently for Copper to figure out where he was to plant his little Hershey’s kiss, the sun was shining, and I thought about how much I really do love the view in our backyard. No matter what time of day it is, there’s something in nature to notice or admire.
The blue sky peaking through the clouds reminded me of how the backyard view changes throughout the day. I knew right then and there I was ready to accept a new approach – I’m calling it ‘mission sunsets or afternoon delights’ if you will.
While I’ll miss this gorgeous view, I have pictures in my photo albums to look back at when I need to, if I’ll need to, or who knows if I really will or not? Time will tell.
The new neighbor has cleared more trees. The lot is ready for the next phase. When the ground thaws this spring, a house will be built. I do hope they have kids so we can watch them play in their driveway like we did with our kids. Or I can watch them wait to catch the bus in the morning.
Keep looking up! I learn from the past, dream about the future and look up. There’s nothing like a beautiful sunset to end a healthy day. – Rachel Boston
I’ve replaced my sunrise obsession with my previously subdued admiration for sunsets. I shall focus on the closing of the day instead of the start of the day for photos.
I’ll grab my camera and capture the golden hour of the day. And focus on being grateful for all the opportunities, challenges, and experiences of the day.
Sunsets help me focus on beauty, peace, colors, and the surprise visitors in nature. And, how much there is to love about the four seasons here in Wisconsin.
Do share…are you a sunrise or sunset person? Which season do you love? Which photo of the sunset do you connect with the most?
