S Is For Sunset

S – Sunset

Every evening at about 5:11 p.m., the patience of the occupants of this house is exhausted. The kids are tired, cranky, and hungry, which is unfortunate because I am too busy fixing supper and picking up the messes of the day to tend to their needs. Peace is found in the sunset, which transfixes even the youngest of the children, who proclaims that God must really like pink.

The beauty of the sunset, and the stillness that accompanies it, are two of the reasons that I would not do well living in the city, which never stops to experience the stillness that the sunset brings. I love the solitude of experiencing the sunset alone. I can breathe, I can think, and I can stand it about 10 minutes before I begin to miss the noise and chaos of my kids. Sometimes a person must experience loneliness to be able to see the beauty in sharing life with others.
