“There was no sudden, striking, and emotional transition. Like the warming of a room or the coming of daylight. When you first notice them they have already been going on for some time.”
― C.S. Lewis
While enjoying one of several sunsets last weekend, I could not help but be fascinated by the light playing on the sand at my feet. The sun reflecting from the sand glowed a coppery orange yet the receding waters picked up the blues from the sky.
It’s one of those ‘elemental’ moments of transition. The transition from land to water is accentuated by the warm and cool colours, just as the day is transitioning to evening, in a similar fashion. There is also the matter of varying texture, from the rough yet ordered pattern of the sand versus the soft, flowing ripples of the water.
So much going on, yet simple and soothing. Yet another moment of the day to consider in its complexity and simplicity. I like the image, as it seems to continually resonate with me in different ways. It is is simply, ‘there’.
