I sit at my computer, looking out my living room window and see that the sun that has nearly disappeared behind my house, is somehow still lighting up the front of the barn across the pasture. I contemplate, like I've done every evening this week, the fact that it is dark now before 7:30..... and I don't like it. I don't like it a LOT!
I grab my phone and go out on the porch. I know it is too far and my phone camera will never capture it properly and I snap off some photos.
It is not light enough out, but the camera is in my hand so I have to take photos of more things that will never turn out..... like the wind chimes hanging above my head.
I expand my zoom and try to capture the horses that are close to the fence. I know it's not going to be good and yet...... I take them anyway. A car passes as I click.
The red solar flower is already glowing . Later when I came in I saw the erie slash of light to the right, poltergiest?? ...oh.... no... just the metal arm of the spinner that is beside the steps. Drats !
Coming in the door I take a snap of the red geranium bloom that still lingers even though I have not watered the plant nearly enough. It's barely there. I pull it up on my computer program and move the light slid all the way to the right. It smudges brighter, but not better.
I decide it is like an abstract painting..... a bad one.... a dark one..... one with demon shadows dancing in the background. I almost delete it and then.... crop it and line it up for the post.
My heart is not unhappy at this moment, but the rest of me is dreading the shorter days, where soon I will be working nearly all the daylight hours most days of the week.
I will definitely be trying to enjoy every light moment from here till then.
