Sunset on the patio

Sunset on the patio

This is last night’s sunset on my sisters patio. We head home this afternoon to cooler weather. Sure have enjoyed the family time.

Alan Watts says, “Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them.” I like to think my years looking through a viewfinder, being more aware, awake, enlightened or whatever you call it  has helped to not overlook as often.

I love blue skies! So, after getting off the bus and walking to Morgan Library on Colorado State University campus I had to smile and point my camera to the northern skies.
