Soul Sunset

When all the work was done for the day, I was able to brave the cold wind coming off Narragansett Bay and embrace the sunset as it descended over Blithewold’s Great Lawn. Despite the bite of November, the golden light raining down gave the world a sense of warmth. The glow lit up the trees, grass, water and sky, creating great contrast with the numerous shadows. Five minutes of walking, reflecting on a good summer, and admiring the beauty of a fall sunset can do a lot for the soul.
