A sunset and a sunrise...

Last night we shared an unexpected moment. I looked outside, and saw the beginning of a beautiful sunset. I asked her if we could go outside and watch it. She took one look out the window and agreed...

We walked hand in hand to the top of the hill, to see over and beyond the houses and trees. That was wonderful.

When we got there we were both mesmerized, filled with happiness at the sunset given us. As we stood there, the indescribable colors were painted all around us, a full circle all around of pastels. They kept changing minute to minute, and it lasted forever. I had said to her as the sunset turned from beautiful to breathtaking, that the events in my life have become more frequent, more forceful, and have finally convinced me. I had been dismissing out of hand all concepts not validated by Scientific Method. That was a mistake. Thousands of years, hundreds of generations, have believed and continue to believe in more. Many now believe, and also believe and live by these modern methods. They can't all be insane...

Last night, I decided that the little voice telling me it's all bullshit was wrong. Right after that, the clouds lit up all around us. It was spectacular. It was an answer. In every direction we saw pink, orange, red painted clouds. Some against deep blue, some against steel grey.
The colors kept changing, the patterns they made were so beautiful I couldn't help myself but keep looking around, trying to see them all.

I finally gave up and kissed her.

For a full ten minutes the incredible light played around us, and we felt each other in a new way. This was where we are supposed to be. Our paths have almost crossed so many times, we've discovered, over the last twenty years, that this cannot possibly be chance. The coincidences too frequent, the events leading to this moment too carefully laid out, to ignore this.

There is a God, or a Plan, or a Universe that cares. Whatever name you give it, it brought us together at this time in both our lives in such a way that we have experienced life-changing moments such as this.

There are words that describe how I feel. I just can't say them... That she is willing to wait gives me relief and joy.

This morning the same colors lit up the east, the same dance of light on different clouds captured my attention.

The moon was crisp, completly unhidden by the clouds which seemed to only be there to reflect the sun's light. In two days it will be full.

I wonder what the sunset will look like in two days?

(the picture here is one I took a week and a half ago, I didn't have a camera last night. Imagine the soft orange red pink across the entire western horizon, and wrapping around both sides all the way to the east with faint pink and red tendrils...)
