On March 4, 2014, the author of a blog I follow had an interesting perspective on what he has learned from sunsets. I agree that most sunsets cause me to pause and reflect. So I’m expanding on his concept and adding some wonderful photos taken in Northern Colorado where the sun sets behind the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
“Beautiful pastel hues of orange and yellow shine bright around the sun, but as you expand your perspective the entire rainbow of colors is there. Soft baby blue and turquoise clouds float calmly through the open sky. Streaks of dark purple and red dash like the strokes of a mad painter.
A sunset is not a single color, and every new color adds beauty. Why would this world be any different? You matter, your unique story, your unique gifts will add to this Universe – it is your choice if you want it to be the bright yellow or the soft turquoise.” You and all of your colors are a gift.
