Sunset at the Harbor

I really don't know what it is about the sunset that seems to just wash everything away. To a lot of people it might seem cheesy or lame to just sit here and watch the sun go down, but for me its almost a reason to keep moving forward. All of the pain, all of the frustration, all of the stress, everything just dissolves in an instant the moment I place myself in front of one of these, especially one as beautiful as this. It's moments like these when I feel like I am in just the right place at just the right time and maybe there is some sort of purpose to it all, almost as if I were meant to be here. The marina is definitely a great place for this. I feel like the sailboats provide a nice accent to the scenery. Especially when the wings are opened wide and bubbling under the pressure of the wind as they pass right underneath the orange glow of the clouds. I can also hear the low rumble of distant party music permeating the air as the cruise ships return from their afternoon trip to the island and it sounds like they all had a blast. I think this might be my favorite sunset to date.

  1. Yes, each sunset is unique. Sunsets always remind me of a quote from "The Sheltering Sky" “How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.”

    Watching a sunset is a precious gift to ourself.
