  1. Wonderful quotes and photos. Loved that you used Rabindranath Tagore – I see him referenced so infrequently. One of my favorite poetry books is “The Gardener”. What a great way to “soften” the day!

  2. my favorite is “sunset is a global phenomenon with a long history” – tiny
    it makes me think of how old this earth and how many billions of sunsets there have been.

    also i like “At sunset Nature is painting for us…day after day…pictures of infinite beauty”.- John Ruskin
    this reminds me that there is never a time without a sunset

Would love to hear your thoughts!
