Hot August Night

Sunset, Clarksville, TN



Beautiful sunset over Clarksville, TN Sunset, August 9, 2007


When we came out of the mall in Clarksville, TN, last night, this brilliant sunset was painted across the western sky. Everyone was stopping to stare at it, and little children were pointing and chattering.

This image has had no processing except for sizing it down. This is exactly like it came out of the camera.

A few minutes later, as we drove away, most of the lights in the mall and most of the street lights in the area went out. Within 30 seconds or so, the mall lights came back on (from a generator?) but the street lights didn't.

Many sunsets are nice, even beautiful, but this one was truly memorable.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
