In the unexpected glory of a sunset it gives me a moment or two to reflect upon the happy (or tragic) moments of the day.
It is in those few minutes that I can pause to feel pensive and appreciative of what I have done, have had or lacked and what is to come.
I can think vicariously of others lives and what their expectations of happiness are.
We can choose to live hard or live quietly or meander between them both on any given day or hour. In a sunset, we (and I) can feel and reflect. If we want to.
