Bloggers already have submitted many beautiful photos of sunrises and sunsets to illustrate this week’s theme, “The Golden Hour.” I love the way sunlight at the beginning and end of the day plays across the water — whether it be oceans, or lakes, or rivers. But, I came inland to the forest instead, where the warm hues of the setting sun cast a golden light and cause the just-fallen leaves to glow. So easy to take for granted, yet so important to appreciate.
“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.” ~ Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator
