Sunset with some birds at Fort De Soto
Sunsets and sunrises have always been special to me, even more so when I am out in nature.
Waking before the sun comes up and finding a quiet place to watch the sun creep over the horizon gives me hope, fills me with peace and a yearning desire to find out what wonders the day will bring me. Whether that is being out photographing birds, sharing the days with friends or spending it alone with my thoughts, it is all good.
Sunsets might signal the end of the day for some but even when the darkness falls I still feel the hope, the peace and desire at that time of what the next day will bring.

I feel worried for the future and I am filled with angst right now and I know I am not alone. However; I do know that even when times are difficult life is good. The sun rises after every sunset. Always.
I find comfort in that simple fact.
