There Are Certain Things You Can Be Late For…..

Sunsets are not on that list.

I had to run Kristen to Marc’s for a hat, because tomorrow is ‘Hat Day’ at school, and she and a friend are planning on wearing matching hats. As we’re coming home, the sun is this huge PERFECT orange circle in a lightly pink sky. We both remarked about it, and she asked if we could make it to Lakeview in time.  I smiled and hit the gas, saying, ‘We’s shore gonna try!!’

Made most of the lights on Oberlin Avenue, got caught at West Erie. Zipped into the park, and into a spot to see the sun halfway past the horizon.  AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGG!!!

Snapped off a few shots, watched the last of the edge disappear, and said, ‘Well, that was fun while it lasted.’

There was a gentleman sitting on a bench right behind me, and he said, “7:24.”

Excuse me?

“Tomorrow’s sunset will be 7:24. I checked. I just made it up here as the edge of the sun touched the horizon.”

‘Then,’ I said, ‘I will see you up here at 7:24.’

And if anyone else wants to come, I’ll see you there, too.

Just don’t be late.

  1. There are some things you never get tired of watching, how beautiful. It’s says a lot about a young person’s life when they still appreciate the simple things in life, like watching the sunset w/ her Dad.
