“Everything has it’s wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”
I sat in the warmth of my home and watched the sunset quickly build. My mind was racing thinking of where to go to capture the wonder. My mind was a complete blank as to finding a great location. My inner voice told me to just go outside and make do with what you got.
So many times in searching for that perfect place, I have missed the magic of the moment. I donned a jacket and wandered out to my West yard and stole this moment in time. I gave a quick thank you prayer to the maker and relished the chill and calm of the light.

“At every turn in every day we are presented with angels in a thousand guises, each calling us to follow their song. There is no right or wrong way to go, and only your heart can find the appointments you are born to keep. It’s hard to take this risk, but meeting each uncertainty with an open heart will lead us to an authentic tomorrow.” ©Mark Nepo
