A brilliant fall evening

I sat on the opposite side of the lake watching the shoreline come alive in the sunshine.  The clouds had lingered throughout the day, but an hour before sunset they parted giving the light a truly golden color.  And as the clouds parted, the lake calmed to a sheet of glass; everything on the shoreline was reflected in the mirror-like water.  It was a magical few minutes, long enough to absorb the colors of a brilliant fall evening and to wish the season would linger much longer before we head into winter.

      Oh fall is way too fleeting! Perhaps that’s why we appreciate it and relish in its beauty so much (or at least I do). The colors are certainly a call to me to stop and admire Mother Nature and the spectacle she provides. Thanks, Rex!
