When we live in presence, we see and feel what is precious; what is important. Karen Lang
Sunsets are my favourite time of day.
“It is the most fleeting time of day, and maybe that was why it was her favourite.
Because if you blinked, if you closed your eyes, or turned your head for even the briefest of moments,
You might just miss it.
And like most things in life, the transient, fleeting nature of the moment,
made it all the more special.”

I love to watch the sun, whenever it is a sunrise or sunset Karen. To start the day with a sunrise gives us opportunities to dream the day, before we start it, which for me is a nice beginning of the day 🙂
Yes a beautiful part of the day I agree Irene! Very still and special ☀️🌈
I like everything about this post: your words, the image and the quote. As a photographer, I know how fleeting the light can be especially at the borders of day and night. Life can also be fleeting like that.
Thank you! To capture and be in the moment with a perfect sunset is definitely understood more by a photographer. 👏🌅
Beautiful, Karen. I love sunsets, too.
A beautiful part of life. Thanks Carrie 🌈🙏🏻
Thank you Karen for sharing a beautiful sunset that last for more than a blink of an eye 💛
My pleasure. Let’s enjoy what moments we are given. Thanks Val 💚💕🌈
I can’t decide if sunsets or sunrises are my favorite time of day. I’m not an early bird, so I guess I’ll have to wait until I’m an old bird and sleep less to find out . . . beautiful pic!
They are both so unique and such special times of day. I think I’m more relaxed at sunset, the day is done, I can let go and begin again Tomm! Thanks Kristine ☀️🌸
So true. I saw the sunset out the window he other day, went for my camera and by the time I got outside with it, the color had faded.
Great example Emilie. Being in the moment means just taking it in and doing nothing more. 🌅💕
Two of the most beautifully distracting events from the trials of life is the rising and setting of the sun. It is a healing grace from God which is most joyful to Him, I believe, because it does so much good for us. “As a little child who delights in being tossed into the air, God, at sunset and sunrise too says: ‘Do I again!'” (G.K. Chesterton)
I’m glad it happens again and again too Alan! A gift indeed 💝🙏🏻
These days, I’m fortunate to see many sunrises. The sunset and the sunrises take on more shared meaning over the years.
Beautiful Ka! And it doesn’t matter how many times I sit before either of them! It’s a miracle, each and every time! ☀️🌅
