I leave work tonight to come to class and I stop dead at this absolutely gorgeous sunset....
The sky was a pale peach where it kissed the earth and then ran skyward in streaks of a storm-kissed berry blue, streaks of grape sorbet, tropical punch pink/red and a pale lavender surrounding the crescent moon, which shone valiantly through thickening clouds.
I stood there in awe of this glorious sight for several minutes before reaching into my purse for my camera so I could capture the beauty before me when I realized the horrible truth....
My camera wasn't in my bag...it was sitting at home where it wasn't doing me a darn bit of good.
So I went the less-satisfactory route and snapped a few pics on my camera phone. Needless to say they look terrible.
The moral of the story? Always take time to watch the sunsets and sunrises presented to you in life, for each one is unique and will not be repeated.
And don't forget to pack your camera.
