fleeting


Thunderous morning rain gave way midday to brilliant autumnal sun. The kids’ coats were still damp, from rainy recesses, when we got home from school this afternoon. It warmed to the point of opening windows. I rushed an early dinner to get us outside for a brief walk. Soon, very soon, there won’t be any light after dinner, or, for that matter, when we sit down to eat. The convergence of blue skies and evening light felt all the more precious for their obviously fleeting nature.

Thank you so much for capturig the sunlight in the first picture and the magical play of light and shadows. Even if I find late autumn and winter a little depressing sometimes, the light is more amazing and precious than in summer.

Gillian was just complaining about the much earlier sunsets. I should be missing the light, but instead am welcoming the warm, cozy possibilities of the dark.
