We recently visited the Red Rocks of Sedona and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. We have many wonderful memories from this trip, including an evening at Sunset Point in Sedona. We shared this evening with many others, all who seemed to have no care in the world other than to enjoy the beauty of a evening sunset.
It’s funny how we can be so stressed out, and yet an event that we ignore each night in our home towns can create such a carefree attitude when visiting another location.
I hope you have a great week – may it be as carefree as sitting and watching the sunset.

It seems that as our sunset gets closer, time speeds up exponentially. Daily life and all that comes with it can become blurred. And, if we don’t slow down and take the time to enjoy life, perhaps this image foreshadows how we will experience life.
The word angles can be interpreted in many different ways, including these (summarized from dictionary.com):
- Geometrically, with two lines coming together to a point.
- A projection, or corner (generally a product of the first item).
- A viewpoint, often used to position an argument or sale.
All of which leads me to my entry into this week’s A Word A Week Photo Challenge:
This photo of the U.S. Capital Building demonstrates a lot of geometric angles. And though there are thousands of angles represented in the building design, these are dwarfed by the number of angles within.
I came across this TED video today and I want to share it with you. In ten minutes, Phil Hansen demonstrates the power of limitations, not only within the creative process, but within life. Interestingly, he points out that often too many choices can lead to, well, nothing.
I hope that you find inspiration in this video.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.

May our weeks be filled with sunshine.
This week I’ve been traveling on business and haven’t seen much of the outside except for when I’ve been lucky enough to grab a window seat on the plane. Here is a shot of the plane from my seat as we fly into the sun:
And here is a shot of some plots of land through the clouds:
And to close this challenge, here’s a shot of a sunset from above the clouds:
All of these shots are taken with my phone through plane windows, smudges and all!
The world is a fascinating place, and being up in and above the clouds can be pretty cool – as long as the air is smooth…
Have a great day!
