Ask DJ Lyons: If a Sunset could talk, what would it say?

If a Sunset could talk, what would it say?

They say a picture can say a thousand words. Don’t worry. This hub will not be that long. As you gaze at this series of three pictures of a sunset taken in East Tennessee on the 16th of February 2011, what does it say to you?

Nature's Notes: Sunset Inspiration

This is what it said to me. In other words, these are the thoughts it inspired me to think, write, and share.

Peace. Peaceful.

Peacemaking. Peacemaker.

Rest. Repose.

Gratitude. Grateful. Thank you.

Love. Life. God’s gift to us.

Go in Peace.

Breathe in as you read those words again. Peace. Savor the picture. Breathe out.

Breathe in as you think about what it means to be Peaceful and how being Peaceful feels. Breathe out.

Breathe in as you think about what it means to be a peacemaker , peacemaking, a maker and co-creator of peace. Breathe out.

Breathe in as you think the words “Thank you.” Think about all the things you have to be grateful for. There is much to inspire gratitude in this world like the delight of a sunset – however brief. Breathe out.

Breathe in as you contemplate God’s love for us, the life He blesses you with, and all the other gifts from God that you are a direct beneficiary of. Breathe out.

Once again, breathe in as you contemplate the wonder of being peaceful, feeling peaceful, experiencing the perfect peace and wonder of God’s love for you, His beloved child.

What is the moral of this monologue?

This is the lesson, the moral of this beautiful sunset. It is too easy to default to being too busy to take the time to really breathe and really see and savor a beautiful sunset or a flower or a puffy cloud. These are all blessings from God. It is His way of giving you a mental hug, an attaboy hooray for a job well done, a special greeting as you are touched by His extraordinary grace.

Have a very peaceful day. Hug someone you love – either mentally or physically. Remember to make time to take those deep, calming breaths at special moments throughout the day or night.

Go … in … peace. Adieu. Bon Voyage. Good-bye.

Before Sunset
Before Sunset

In 1994, director Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Waking Life) made Before Sunrise, a gorgeous poem of a movie about two strangers (played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy) wandering around Vienna, talking, and falling in love. Ten years later, Linklater, Hawke, and Delpy have returned with Before Sunset, which reunites the same characters after Hawke has written a book about that night. Delpy appears at the final book reading of his European tour; they have less than two hours before Hawke has to catch a flight to New York...and in that time, they walk around Paris, talk, and fall in love all over again. It sounds simple, perhaps dull, but it's written with such skill and care and acted with such richness that it's a miracle of filmmaking. On its own, Before Sunset is moving and wonderful; seen right after Before Sunrise, it will break your heart. --Bret Fetzer
