sunset glory

yes, another pretty orange sunset, from my west bedroom window, here in Tallahassee, Florida.

And the sun and clouds "dare" to be beautiful! "dare", as in these days of bad news and ruining weather disasters, there is beauty to be found. You have to be Looking for it. then be "Empty" when it is there!

"empty" like years ago, I walked past the University library, at sunset, and I could see not only the incredible sunset, I could see that the hundreds of students, coming and going through this library entrance, never noticed this sunset! their heads must have been full of study and course material: they were not empty, no room for a sunset in *their* brain. Their souls must have gotten a bit starved, after years of Not Noticing!
so today there are the "electronic" Zombies! these are people who, with ear buds plugged into their ears and with them texting on their phones, there is also no room for sunsets!
