What goes into a beautiful sunset. Nuts and bolts...I don't think so.

Updated on March 20, 2010

No nuts and bolts here...

What could be more relaxing than a sunset on the water?

Flowers in the sky

I have never seen a sunset as beautiful as this one. Honestly. Well, until the day I took this picture.  So I got to thinkin'.... What goes into a sky so awesome? A little sun, a lot of clouds, and what ever goes on up there that makes it all come together with such amazing colors. I know I'll never see another like it in my whole lifetime and that makes me a little sad and yet a little hopeful to see more that are even more amazing than the one before.  Just think. Did the sky look any different a hundred years ago? well, there was a lot less pollution.  Not so many of us plant workers really think about the contributations to the killing of ol' mother earth. I dont really cry myself to sleep night after night 'cause my hands are in the toxic pudding that the plant i work at lets out into the ozone. But I am concerned about it. I'm not proud of it but I do have to provide for the wife and kids....right? Some times I feel so helpless. So small. That's kinda why I started this blog;to see how many people would care to see the world through my eyes. So selfish I know but, don't we all have the right to be a little selfish? Well, looks like I'm rambling on now so ta ta for now. Good night and hopefully your sunset is the most beautiful one you will ever far.
