When the Sun Goes Down: exploring creativity and spirituality | blog

On my vacation this year, I got to spend some extended periods of time watching sunsets.  This isn’t something I usually do.  Oh, I notice pretty colors in the sky in the evening once in a while, but to watch the entire act of the sun going down, I can’t say this is part of my daily schedule.

The truth is, watching these sunsets unfold was spectacular.  I have at least twenty versions of the picture above, as I kept thinking it couldn’t possibly get more beautiful, and then it did. And the next night – though from a different viewpoint – from high up in the mountains – it was just as awe-inspiring.

In those moments, I wondered why I don’t always pay attention to something that has the potential to be so beautiful.  But the truth is, I haven’t made time once since I’ve been back. I want to change that.  I want to make a decision to look for the beauty of creation, and watch it paint the skies.

So – what other beauty am I missing?
