what i did on my summer vacation, part four






What I did on my summer vacation: My favorite thing!

I make it a point to watch every possible sunset. I love that no two are quite alike. Over Lake Michigan, the sunset is the entire sky.

And I love how the sunset is always changing. As soon as you look away, it takes a new shape, and colors brighten and dim.

I even love that sunsets never quite look the same as a photograph. You can't capture the hugeness, and the colors never seem to be quite as brilliant.

I took some sunset photos into an elementary class a few years ago. One boy was completely amazed at what he had seen (he had likely never seen a lake, actually) and he asked, "Is that on Earth?"

I said, "Yes, it's in Michigan."

And he said, "Yeah, but is that on Earth?"

Every sunset is a blessing.

Thank you Val! You are AWESOME!

I am trying to keep up with the blogging! It's been okay for this week, but I will probably not be as frequent with school starting soon!
Just a forewarning!
