Sunset delight

img_20161018_1845531

It looked just like this!  As I came home from shopping – such an ordinary thing, in an ordinary neighbourhood – I was met with this magnificent sight!  The sunset pinked the sky in streaks along the cloud line.  It was so very beautiful; not least because it was so very fleeting.  Nothing to grasp hold of, nothing to cling to; here right now, and then gone.  But a moment of wonder and joy in the midst of the ordinary.  And it will come again, and again, if just I would look up and see.  And today I did 🙂
