Surreal Sunset

I was just heading out with the dogs this evening when I glanced at the western sky. For the next twenty minutes I was mesmerized.

What made it even more special occured a few minutes later. As the dogs and I walked to the beach, we came across an eight year old neighbourhood boy sitting all by himself on a rock staring at the last remnants of the fiery sky. The little boy turned to me, his eyes shining with excitement, and asked "Did you see that sunset? That was AWESOME!"

When a little boy can notice and take pleasure in a sunset, there is hope for this world yet.
