Sunset, Sunrise

Last night:



This morning:



You can almost believe, looking at these two pictures, that there was an easy progression from the first to the second, no darkness in between. I both love and struggle with the fact that this is not how things work. For today I think it is a thing enormously comforting and beautiful.

  1. I agree. Something about fall colors strike me similarly. Something about the vibrancy and the light that's there while the leaves are dying. And something about how change is always happening, but only occasionally is it happening quickly enough for us to see.

    Beautiful pictures and thought provoking ideas, as always.

    1. You know what? I just realized that it was 10 years ago yesterday I found out I was miscarrying. So the space between these two pictures exactly marks the 10-year anniversary of one of the darkest nights of my life. And it was the beauty of the fall trees that floored me a few days later--the brilliance with which they were dying. It's something I've carried with me since then.
