Surreal and Sensational Sunsets
Each night, lately, at about 8PM the show begins. Of course, no two sunsets are alike. But the ones that
have been descending upon us have been totally breathtaking.
Since the wall of windows in my living room face West, it is a sight that I treasure. I'm either witnessing the
sunsets from that room or up on the roof terrace. It is worth the hike up the stairs to sit in wonder to see
what the skies provide.
It is so amazing to experience all this beauty, almost on a daily basis. This morning I was sitting drinking my coffee up on the roof terrace when a female Vermillion Flycatcher with a piece of stick in her mouth flew right under the roof covering and landed on the string of lights that hang up there - about three feet from where I was sitting. She obviously did not see me for a few seconds, then she looked at me, dropped the stick and went to the jacaranda tree. I almost wanted to apologize to her for being up there and startling her.
Life truly IS about the little things - don't you agree?
