Sky-Watch, Friday: Just another sunset?

Another sunset from where I run every Sunday afternoon, when it's not raining that is. Sometimes we take a lot of things for granted---things that are constant in our lives, like this beautiful sunset. We don't pay attention unless it's out of the ordinary. I didn't appreciate my 20/20 vision until I needed prescription glasses, for example. Today is a great day to list down the things I am grateful for that I don't really pay attention to. Please feel free to add to the list.

scented bed sheets,  remote control,  running water,  traffic light,  ATM machine,  instant coffee,  breakfast,  toilet paper,  postman, fruit vendor, window-cleaner, Chinese takeout


Now that summer is officially over, I would be missing this fiery sunset during my Sunday run. Well, I can close my eyes anytime I want and bathe in its glorious warmth all over again.

Traffic lights .... ???? What is the purpose... a red light is just a suggestion to stop... and most drivers don't stop at all :-)

Anyway... I agree with you... we should be thankful for all those small things that makes life agreeable!

hahaha Sidney, you're right...the red light is just a suggestion to stop. when a driver doesn't stop, i have the right to honk at him!:D
