Sky Fire

Here's another form of light to savor on these short winter days. Here in northern California, our summer sunsets are clear, so we have little interplay of light. The sun just goes down in a cloudless sky, and often so far north that we get just a lingering glow where we live. 

That's lovely, too, but not as dramatic as our winter sunsets when the sky, the clouds and the water are on fire with brilliant color. My Beloved and I often take a few minutes to stop at this time of day to admire a spectacular sunset and to be grateful for the sky fire.

In summer, the temptation is to fill all those bright hours with activities; in winter, we give ourselves permission to stop and savor - it's cold outside, anyway, so why not hunker down inside and relish Mother Nature's changing canvas.
