As usual while on a holiday which involves the sea, I find myself taking many, many photos of sunsets and sunrises. This photo was taken while walking toward a small village down a rough road not too far from the villa that was home for ten days while in the Philippines. Sunsets are particularly appealing because of the colours, especially the gold.
In the second half of life, there is a resonance with late afternoon and its golden light and the gold that appears in the sky with sunset. Each evening up and down the beach I was able to see people gather to honour the setting sun, to wonder at the colours.
For me, sunset and sunrise are the times when I feel the numinous presence of something that can only be described as the ultimate presence, the source of my spiritual nature
Now that I am back at work, I am already planning the next tropical adventure where again I will bask in sunshine and make my private ceremonies of sunrise and sunset.
