Do Not Stare

Directly into the Sun

This unitary blogger Slice of Sky meme has been an interesting exercise for me. It has forced me to go outside, be still and watch the sunset more often. Normally it just passes me by.

I have noticed that the colors actually pulse in intensity as the sun slowly descends into the sea. I even saw the infamous Green Flash one evening.

I hope you enjoy these Slices of Sky and are not bored by them.

I can't imagine that looking out at the ocean and sky has ever bored anyone -- it gives a feeling of peace. There probably doesn't exist a scene that enhances meditation as well as the seashore, sunsets, and the sky -- whether it's deep blue or cloudy.

There is one other feeling that your slices of sky have at moments given me -- that is, a feeling of wistfulness -- of yearning to be there. Then I just remind myself to appreciate the beauty of our scenery here at home. We may not have the deep blue waters that are a familiar sight in the tropics, and of course we don't get to see the sun set over the Atlantic (although the early morning people get to see the sun rise over the ocean)-- but we do have beautiful forests and woods and meadows everywhere you look -- just like you have on your mountain in North Carolina.

Still, I can't help but wish I were there on Maui sometimes.

Well you can always come to my blog for some warm shots when it really gets cold in Massachusetts.

One of the reasons I have always liked PBS Nature, Discovery and the like is because I can go places I will likely never get to. I get to do the same with so many of the gardening blogs I visit.
