I haven't been able to do many sunset runs lately. Today was a treat. I left a trail of unraveled thoughts behind me as I gingerly crunched along. Probably that looks like invisible candy wrappers.
I was about to turn around when the sky started to exhibit some pale streaks over the lake. I continued up the ridge for a while instead to get a better view. At first I thought it was going to be an understated sort of affair, but then, through the trees to the west and north, an immodest glow began to rage. I was sad to reenter the forest and tried to get through it quickly, hoping to catch the colors on the other side.
More hints of glowingness surged through as I crossed the field and headed onto the road. I passed home and stopped the gps at 3.0 miles, at the crossroads, where the view was outstanding. I walked a little more, thankful, and admired the radiance, before going home.
LRL sobbed a bit but it's still really nothing. Really. Slept a bunche last night. No coughing today! Bullet: dodged?!
