This evening I watched a fantastic sunset.
The sun, a golden orb, settled low down on the horizon. Streaks of clouds stretched across, like wispy quartz backdropped against the heavens.
The sky was a deep azure, fading to a deep velveteen black.
A flock of geese swung across the sky, almost as if in awe of the backdrop themselves. There was a silence that was magnificent in its profundity.
I settled back and regarded this majesty unfolding before me. The best free show on the planet.
And I thought to myself, "How insignificant I am."
Mind you, I thought that yesterday too, and it was raining.
