I had a longer than normal work shift, and during it I still had to go and pick up baby girl from school…
And keep working again when I came back home.
Then it was a mad rush of dinner prep, some washing, then eating, then cleaning up…
By the time I had done all that, all I wanted was the couch.
The good ol’ trusty couch.
But I was upstairs, and through my rush to get back downstairs, I looked out the window, and paused.
I could see a cargo ship far off in the distance on the bay.
I hesitated… and then I walked over to the window.
The ship was almost blended into the waters, but you might be able to spot it to the left of the left-hand side tree.
Lights flashed in the nearer water, beacons to warn others of the shore. They did so at random intervals. One of them flashed four times, then the other chimed in for four flashes after a count of two.
A streak of orange light was strewn across the sky. The chance at capturing a gorgeous setting sun was gone, but instead there was other beauty that lay across the horizon.
I took a deep breath and took it all in.
Then once I was happy with my pause, I walked downstairs.
