Saturday Question

Every Saturday I'll try to come up with some "out there" question that just makes you stop and think about something not so important. Think of it as a mini vacation. If you have any ideas drop me a line and we'll throw it in here. Who knows, it might be fun.

OK - Here goes: Sunrise, Sunset or night sky?

Now...for me I do love them all. I've always enjoyed the sunrise, fresh new beginning to a new day. The birds singing, the sweetness of the morning. BUT...I also crave the sunset. The explosion of colors, the drama as day meets night. Sitting on a front porch/beach/anywhere...just taking those moments to regroup, to remember what it's all about.

But my favorite? The one thing that never fails to catch my imagination, to calm me.....the night time sky. Until I moved to Illinois I had some gorgeous veiws of the rising moon every night. (can't watch it from this house) I could sit for hours, on a blanket or sitting on a swing and just watch as the stars begin to appear, the moon as he dances across the velvet black of the sky.

I love the night.

What about you? Sunrise, Sunset or Night Sky?

I kinda like night. It's dark.

Sunrise is probably my favorite, although both sunrise and sunset can paint some incredible panoramas.

Used to love standing out in the treestand waiting for the sun to rise. Going from a deep chill, to a slow warming as the sun's warmth permeates your being.

Night sky. Far away from the city.

Oh... those stars.

Night Sky.

I made myself a promise years ago I would never see another sunrise unless I chose to. I've kept that promise.

Sunset, to me, is I tried to squeeze in everything I possibly could and just ran out of time.

The night sky is different. Focus on a single star? It's impossible.

The harder I try, even more seem to appear.

Night Sky, stars, yay.
