Soaking the Soul in the Dusk Light |#SkywatchFriday

Dusk whispers the perfect time for self-reflection and gratitude.

An evening walk becomes an excuse to go out into nature and breathe in life!

Feeling refreshed after a busy day. And, it’s wonderful to fill the heart with tons of little everyday moments to cherish. Nature glows under the evening sky in a joyous, serene light that reminds us that it’s the time to fill one’s cup to the fullest, so one doesn’t go empty anymore. The hues around me take on a golden shade and being in that ambience brings me peace and calm that I have been longing for, in between the running around.

Another nudge to be alive to the sights and smells of being in the open, under the vast canvas of the limitless sky, and savour the minutes that are slipping away, never to be back again…everything caught in a slow motion, to appear and then disappear, in the blink of an eye.

I listen to the sounds of nature, the birds fly in a formation off to their nests some place far away! I am home. Amidst my familiar surroundings, I find myself caught in the cacophony of life—a few passing motorists honking unnecessarily at a dog crossing the road, a car screeching to a halt, with a droning sound of marble polishing in one of the apartments above us…in short, life goes on!

Peace. Wonder. Gratitude!

Will see you coming Friday, with yet another edition of Skywatch Friday! Until then, take care and I hope you get to enjoy the fleeting moments amidst Mother nature as they come.

Much love and positive vibes sent your way.

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Alan! Glad you felt so! I find such moments are always around us, just that we are caught up in our lives so often, that we fail to notice them at times.
      Thank you for visiting.
